Yet another Mattel toy recall. CNN reports this one involves Barbie accessory toys, Geotrax trains, and the Big World 6 in 1 Bongo toys. The recalls were ordered because excessive levels of lead paint were found on the surfaces of these toys. CNN is also reporting that the CPSC is investigating whether Mattel “knowingly withheld” information the hazards of toys involved in the prior recalls.
This Mattel recall follows earlier Mattel recalls that involved Barbie toys, “Cars” toys and Polly pocket toys (see the story below), as well as the first Mattel recall which involved over 1 million toys (see story here).
