Mattel has recalled almost 1 million toys because they were covered in unreasonably dangerous and toxic lead paint. Mattel says a Chinese contractor is to blame. According to Mattel spokespersons, they intercepted more than 2/3 of the toys, but about 300,000 of them may have been purchased by unsuspecting consumers. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, the applicable date codes are 109-7LF to 187-7LF which should appear on the product or its packaging. Toys recalled included the Elmo Tub Sub, the Dora the Explorer Backpack, and the Giggle Gabber.
In the past year, China has been the source of many dangerous and defective products reaching the U.S. including pet food, tires, and lead paint on the Thomas & Friends toys. American businesses can force these Chinese businesses to exercise better quality control and provide safe products. They should, and to do so, American companies must adequately test, inspect, and examine all overseas products or component parts for safety and quality.
