Lead Leads Mattel to 3rd Toy Recall

Mattel will recall 800,000 China-made toys over excessive amounts of lead that they contain. The recall is the third for the company still reeling from its previous recalls announced last August 1 and 14.

The new recall covers 675,000 Barbie accessories sold between October 2006 and August 2007. It also includes 90,000 units of Mattel's GeoTrax locomotive line and about 8,900 Big Big World 6-in-1 Bongo Band toys, both Fisher-Price brand. The Big Big World products were sold nationwide from July through August of this year, while the GeoTrax toys were sold from September 2006 through August of this year.
