Mattel Recalls 9M More Toys

Mattel recalls millions of Chinese-made toys that contain magnets that can be swallowed by children or could have lead paint.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said that magnets can come loose and be swallowed in more than 7 million Polly Pocket toys, 680,000 Barbie and Tanner sets, 1 million Doggie Daycare sets and 350,000 Batman figures. The surface paint on 250,000 Sarge cars from the movie "Cars" were also added to the recall.

Isn't this crazy? Adam emailed this to me not too long ago. He wants to go through and toss anything listed as "made in China".

It seems like there is a new product recall everyday. I am especially concerned about all the recalls on children's toys and household products. I set up a personal file that alerts me to all product recalls and it sends me a timely notice when one of my products has been recalled.
