Forget the toys, I'm concerned about all the other things that are made in China that could be full of poisons. Glad sandwich bags, Hamburger Helper sauces, the christmas lights I just bought at Target with a big "LEAD PAINT" warning on the outside of the box, printing on thousands of cardboard boxes that I touch when shopping and stocking my shelves. I have to wear gloves to shop at Publix and unload my groceries and hang my Christmas lights?
Toys are the tip of the iceberg of the catastrophe that cheap overseas contractors and subcontractors are doing to save pennies.
“We test every (product) before it ships numerous times”
Tests on more than 1,200 children's products, most of them still on store shelves, found that 35 percent contain lead -- many with levels far above the federal recall standard used for lead paint. via LasVegasNOW
