More Mattel Lead Painted Toy Recalls Tomorrow

Toy-giant Mattel will recall yet more toys covered in deadly lead-tainted paint, the AP reports.

Anonymous sources indicated a Fisher-Price toy and its accessories and a Barbie playset would be the recalled items, and the recall would number into the hundreds of thousands.

We’re not surprised. As we predicted on August 18th in a post commenting on a video Mattel’s CEO made after their last recall, that as companies audit their suppliers more intensely, they’re going to find more defects.
