More poison China Trash

As mentioned in a previous post China is an unethical trader who either cannot or does not care to adequately ensure the safety of it's manufactured goods. Well they've proved my point yet again as over a million Thomas the Tank Engine toys have been recalled due to lead contamination of the paint.

The effected toys are mostly the red and yellow trains and accessories from the wooden line of toys produced from Jan 05 to June 07. I've seen numbers as high as 1.5 million units over a 2 1/2 year period, Yup that's quality control for you.

The production codes that tell you if they are dangerous or not are on the packaging not the toys, I'm sure most parents have packed the boxes away for safe keeping.

Lead is a serious toxin for developing children and these toys must be taken away from your kids.

Yet another reason to boycott China trash,Recommend this Post
