The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling an additional 700,000 Mattel toys made in China because they may contain excessive lead.

The bulk of the recalled toys, 675,000 of them, are various Barbie accessories. Another 8,900 belong to the "Big Big World 6-in-1 Bongo Band" line, while 9,000 are "Geo Trax Locomotive" toys. Both of those are sold under the Fisher-Price name.

Last month Mattel recalled 20.5 million toys made in China, also because of potentially dangerous levels of lead.

    well there is a problem.other countries are checking the products they recieve from china,bad news,tainted makeup,turning the face black. tainted candy,ect.they are looking for stupid I guess.what are they thinking? china is saying it's unfair!yes we have ecolie,but get right on it.we get some recalls on cars,but the car co.takes responsibilities and pay for it.China can just give us back our jobs.we can make stuff here.it might cost more to make but we'll have jobs to pay for stuff. they think we can't do without them.our pets were poisened,toys tainted,food tainted,and the list goes on.not just to us,other countries to.when will the government do something,or is it just up to the people to stop buying what is in stores,sending a messages where they need to go. it may be hard to cut way back,but not impossible.china or any other country who wishes to hurt the U.S.in any way need to be delt with.we deal with terroist,and at this point what would it be called.enough is enough!

    How did all those toys get into our country without any of them being checked for lead in the paint? See how easy it is to send us unsafe items from other counties. What about all the food that we are importing for humans to consume? Who is checking that? Wait until they start send us our perscription supplies. That is in the near future because I received a notice in the mail about it from our government. Start buying USA made only or don't buy it. If we don't buy it, they can't send it anymore because it will just sit on the shelves at stores. America needs to wake up and support our people at home. When we buy foreign products, they take the profits and use the money to build more weapons to use against us. if we made our own products there would be plenty of jobs. We want to make big money here, but buy cheaper foreign products). In Michigan, the biggest employer used to be General Motors. Now it is government jobs and higher taxes to get money for those who don't have jobs.
