Millions More Chinese-Manufactured Toys Recalled for Safety Issues

As reported by cnn.com, millions of packages of the hot-selling, Chinese-manufactured toy Aqua Dots have been recalled under order of the Consumer Products Safety Commission.  If swallowed, the Aqua Dots convert into a date-rape-drug chemical lead that is especially hazardous for children.  Two children in the United States and three in Australia have already been hospitalized.  The cnn.com article also mentions additional recalls of Chinese -manufactured toys because of high lead content in the paint.

These recent developments will surely further push Congress into wide-reaching expansion of the CPSC and FDA in connection with product safety.
