Consumer Alert - More Toys Recalled

I love how the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) spokesweasel phrases her take on the recall:
Commission spokeswoman Julie Vallese noted that the effects of lead are cumulative.

"A lot of what is being recalled is because it violates the law, not that there is an imminent health risk," she said.
If it's cumulative, you stupid twat, and your organization is failing to do its job, then who knows how much lead children have been exposed to, and for how long?

The recalled items include: _About 35,000 Baby Einstein Discover & Play Color Blocks, distributed by Kids II Inc. The blocks were sold around the country between June and September. For more information, or to arrange for a free replacement block, call 866-203-6788 or visit http://www.kidsii.com.
