Nine Million More Toys Recalled
Mattel is not having a good couple of weeks; they've announced another recall of toys, this time nine million of 'em. Some of the toys are being recalled due to lead paint, some due to magnetic part risks, some due to particularly piercing electronic noises. (Okay, I made up that last one.)
Mattel has announced a new testing program where every batch of paint will be tested, and has blamed the lead paint on an unauthorized third-party supplier used by a Chinese manufacturer.
Me, I'm starting to think my kids will only get to play with rocks. Maybe dull, organic sticks.
