Fisher Price & Mattel have announced new recalls affecting Geo Trax Locomotive toys, Bongo Band toys and Barbie accessories due to lead paint. Links to recalls as well as a link for getting recalls emailed to you directly and also to petition for safer toys are located in my blog. I also have a list of american made toys. Go <a href="http://journeytocrunchville.wordpress.com/" target="_blank">HERE</a> if inerested.

Scary stuff- thanks for the heads up. DH and G were just playing with a massive Geotrax set that was given to us last year.

Is this going to be a weekly thing? I subscribed to the recall list on the FDA and the CPSC website and did not get any notice of this recall. I did hear something on the news. When will our companies make the necessary changes to insure the safety of our children????

To be honest I do think this will be a weekly/regular thing for the next several months or year until they are able to retro test all of these products. We're talking millions of toys and other products that were made during these time frames.<br><br>
Here is a link to the actual US CPSC site. Weird that you didn't get the updates. <a href="http://www.cpsc.gov/" target="_blank">http://www.cpsc.gov/</a>
