    Story Highlights

    NEW: Toys recalled were manufactured in China, Sen. Dick Durbin says
    Recall is first for Fisher-Price and parent company Mattel involving lead paint
    Fisher-Price: Keep suspect toys away from children, contact company
    Owners of recalled toy can exchange it for voucher for another product

    What in the hell is going on. Latley all of the products we have been getting from China we have been having problems with. Why in the fuck would someone use Lead Pain on a child's toy knowing they put toys in their mouth. We need to start boycotting everything that comes from China.

    Last month it was Thomas The Tank Engine products, now this. This is getting old fast.

    This is way beyond old. I'm pissed.

    I just got done going through my kids toy boxes digging out all the toys on the list. I've found 6 so far. I'm going to search the van tomorrow. I'm also setting appointment with the kids Dr first, to have them all tested for lead.

    You should make sure you don't have any of the Thomas The Tank Engine toys that have the Lead paint in them like they recalled last month.

    We've never done Thomas The Tank Engine. They never got into the shows or the toys.

    There are more Toys added to the list now and it's getting more serious. It was either The Early Show on CBS or Good Morning America I was watching this morning and they said that if you have any of the toys recalled it's now serious enough to get them in to have a blood test as soon as possible because there are kids turning up with poinoning from it and it's pretty serious.

    Serious issue, is China trying to poison the US? Whether intentional or not, seems the federal government should be stepping in, big time.

    I agree. We can't trust them. They are clearly having issues.

    Not just issues here but over there too. They have people selling fake bottled water to the citizens there. I think China's just having a ton of shit going on and it's affecting both them and us.

    Also, I read this news last week and I was like "Sucks for my work."
