Chinese Toys Being Recalled at Alarming Rate

Jun 20, 2007 5:51:35 PM

According to a June 18, 2007 article in The New York Times, China manufactured every one of the 24 kinds of toys recalled for safety reasons in the United States so far this year by the federal Consumer Products Safety Commission. The latest recall, announced last week, involves 1.5 million Thomas & Friends trains and rail components, which were coated at a factory in China with lead paint, which can damage brain cells, especially in children.

Another scary example: a ghoulish fake eyeball toy made in China that was recalled after it was found to be filled with kerosene.

The string of toy recalls has led to demands for stepped-up enforcement of safety by United States regulators and importers.
