This is just the start

Global toxic toy scare

August 2, 2007 - 1:23PM

The American arm of Fisher-Price, a subsidiary of Mattel, has announced it is recalling 83 types of toys - including the popular Big Bird, Elmo, Dora and Diego characters worldwide.

The move comes as Fisher-Price in the US issued a warning to parents that they should keep suspect toys away from children and contact the company if concerned.

The recall involves plastic preschool toys made by a Chinese vendor.

This is what happens when big companies get their toys made at the cheapest price. Will we hear more stories of this kind of the in the future? Does a duck Quack!
