Made in China: All 24 toys recalled for safety issues

This story is not going away until we start demanding some changes and invest in stable democracies (maybe even our own!) which have a modicum of human rights awareness rather than communists ones with a large, cheap labor forces.

China’s own government auditing agency reported last month that 20 percent of the toys made and sold in China had safety hazards such as small parts that could be swallowed or sharp edges that could cut a child, according to a report in China Daily.

Other major retailers or toy industry companies hit by recalls for products made in China this year include Easy-Bake Ovens, made by Hasbro, which could trap children’s fingers in the oven and burn them, and Target stores, which the consumer product commission said was importing and selling Anima Bamboo collection games, some of which were coated with lead paint.
