Mattel Recalls Millions of Toys Made in China

The issue of the quality of products manufactured in China, and in this case the toys, chop and extends. Few Velsid days ago had told us the news of removal of more than one million of the brand toys Fisher Price by potential hazards to children’s health. The paint used to paint these toys have high amounts of lead and this entails risks to the health of children.

Now, after less than two weeks, the company Mattel one of the giants of the world of toys, which also sells the line Fisher Price, It announces that it will withdraw millions of products made in China market, including other lines of toys from different brands.

The number of toys affected in the United States is more than 9 million and the world market the figure is 18.2 million.

Again it is toys with paints with high level of lead and some toys that have very small magnets that can be inferred, that although according to the news have not caused any accident, will be removed as a precaution.

Among the toys affected by the measure are the scooper of Barbie doll to collect her dog Tanner excrement, “Polly Pocket”, one of the figures of Batman dolls and one of the cars of the child movie “Cars”.

Also in the news following the announcement of Fisher Price, the Chinese Government forbade questioned toys manufacturer to continue exporting its products and apparently one of the owners of the company committed suicide.

The truth is that the news is very alarmingly so, to us parents with safety when you buy a toy many questions will come us to head.

Hopefully this will so that in the future for the good of all, is extreme care and quality standards that should have all products that will be used by children and which not is put at risk the health of millions of children, only by a higher economic profits.
