Fisher-Price toys recalled in lead scare
August 02, 2007
TOYMAKER Fisher-Price has issued a worldwide recall of almost one million Chinese-made toys because their paint contains excessive amounts of lead. It is the largest recall for Mattel since 1998 when Fisher-Price had to yank about 10 million Power Wheels from toy shops, the Associated Press reported. Fisher-Price general manager David Allmark said the problem was detected by an internal probe and reported to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. Fisher-Price and the commission advised parents should keep suspect toys away from children and contact the company. Mr Allmark said the recall was "fast-tracked", which allowed the company to quarantine two-thirds of the toys before they even made it to shop shelves. In negotiating details of the recall, Fisher-Price and the US Government agreed to withhold details from the public until Thursday to give stores time to get suspect toys off shelves and Fisher-Price time to get its recall hot line up and running. Mr Allmark said the recall was troubling because Fisher-Price has had a long-standing relationship with the Chinese vendor, which had applied decorative paint to the toys. Mr Allmark said the company would put better systems in place to monitor vendors who did not meet Mattel's standards. "We are still concluding the investigation, how it happened. ... But there will be a dramatic investigation on how this happened. We will learn from this."
The recall follows another high-profile move from toy maker RC2 Corp., which in June voluntarily recalled 1.5 million wooden railroad toys and set parts from its Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway product line. The company said that the surface paint on certain toys and parts made in China between January 2005 and April 2006 contain lead, affecting 26 components and 23 retailers.
"Any time a company brings a banned hazardous product into the US marketplace, especially one intended for children, it is unacceptable," said Nancy Nord, acting chair of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
