Chinese Junk Part 5

Here we go... again!
NEW YORK (Reuters) - The world's leading toymaker, Mattel Inc, on Tuesday announced a third recall of Chinese-made toys, saying it would take back more than 800,000 units globally that contain "impermissible" levels of lead.

The latest recall involves three Fisher-Price toy models and eight Barbie brand playsets. No Barbie dolls were included.

In total, 522,000 U.S. toys and 322,000 outside the United States are being recalled. The toys were shipped between August 3, 2006, and July 31, 2007, the company said.

A spate of toy recalls has sparked concern over the quality of products made in China.


Parents might want to keep the "Mattel Voluntary Safety Recall" page PERMANENTLY BOOKMARKED so they can check in on the (seemingly) weekly recalls of dangerous toys. Go to: http://www.mattel.com/safety/us/

Hmmm... I wonder how long will it be before a major corporation states that it will no longer sell products made in China???

Also, I sure hope the World's Stupidest Attorney has more to say!
