Today there seems to be a greater risk of children suffering lead poisoning from their toys than there was before lead-based paint was removed from the market. Tuesday Mattel announced a recall of yet another toy imported from China, due to violation of the lead safety standard. The paints in the “Sarge” die cast toy cars could contain excessive levels of lead. It is a good idea for parents to check the US Consumer Product Safety Commission website often to make sure their children’s toy box is not toxic.
