Health - More Taint

On the plus side, China is determined to kill the guy who is responsible for this. Yes, this IS a good thing. People who endanger the lives of, and kill, others for profit should pay with their own lives. On the minus side, we have yet to find out who in the U.S. is profiting from the tainted food and toys. And I'm fairly sure s/he/they won't be punished with death.
About 20,000 sets of Essentials for Kids Jewelry, sold by Future Industries of Cliffwood Beach, N.J., were recalled because the metal jewelry sets contain high levels of lead that can be toxic if ingested by young children, the agency said.

Additionally, 800 Mag Stix Magnetic Building Sets sold by Kipp Brothers of Carmel, Ind., and 68,000 Shape Sorting Toy Castles sold by Infantino LLC, of San Diego were pulled because they posed choking hazards to young children.
