The folks over at El Segundo, CA based Mattel should really look at changing their name to Mettalic in light of yet another product recall involving lead paint. This would be recall number three for them. If you didn’t know lead paint is paint containing lead, a heavy metal.
The company at first blamed China for the lack of quality control which is a bit disingenuous. Its a good excuse till you realize that most Apple products are made in China and their quality is top notch. Granted most Apple users don’t shove their iPods into their mouths like kids do with Mattel products, but it shows blaming an entire country for quality control is a farce.
