Barbie Toys Included in Latest Mattel Recall

Comments Off

Mattel has issued another toy recall for toys with lead based paint. This is the third recall in a month by Mattel. The toys were all found to have an excessive amount of lead. The toys were made in China.

The company is recalling 675,000 Barbie accessories, including Barbie Dream Puppy House, in which lead paint was found on the dog, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall also includes 8,900 Big Big World 6-in-1 Bongo Band toys and about 90,000 Geo Trax locomotive toys. The products were sold from September 2006 to last month.

Parents are asked to take the recalled toys away from their children. Mattel expects more toy recalls as they do testing on all of their toys. Some members of Congress are calling for a great oversight into the safety of products imported into this country.
