Mattel recently announced a recall that affected nearly 1 million of their toys. The toys, which were manufactured between April 19 and July 6th of this year, may contain lead paint and children may be exposed to the lead when they play with the toys and put them in their mouths. The toys include popular Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, and Go, Diego, Go toys.
The mistake was made in a vendor plant in China, a plant that Mattel says they've been working for for nearly 15 years. If you have own one of these toys manufactured during the recall dates, Mattel says you should take the toy from your child and that consumers will be given a voucher to replace the recalled products.
