Consumer Alert - Additional Toy Recall


Jeesz, will this ever end? From Raw Story comes the report that Mattel announced a new toy recall today.
Mattel announced on Tuesday yet another massive recall of toys made in China, targeting some 844,000 items with high levels of lead, the company said in a statement.

[...]

Mattel blamed Chinese manufacturers for using "uncertified paints" with excessive amounts of lead, especially in yellow, brown and orange paints applied to the toys.

[...]

Several of the affected items are Barbie accessories, but not the dolls themselves, Mattel said.

The company also recalled three toys in its Fisher-Price range, again made by Chinese manufacturers, and will refund the purchase price to consumers.
You know the drill. Check the kids' toys and return any suspect items immediately.
