ABSTRACT
The article reports on recalls of toy products in the U.S., which are made in China, and found to have contained lead. A child could get lead into his or her system by mouthing a lead-contaminated toy, and lead could seriously harm a child's brain development. Fisher-Price recalled about 1 million character toys, including Sesame Street characters, Dora, and Diego on August 2, 2007. Mattel recalled millions of different toys on August 14, including Sarge die cast toy cars.
