China Is Our Friend, Part 57,258--More Poisoned Toys

Yah, more poison shipped to the USA by that wonderful "trading partner" favored by GWBush and the Adam Smith-ites.

Of course, poisoning US children is a minor annoyance, except to Mattel.

Less than two weeks after Mattel Inc. recalled 1.5 million Chinese-made toys because of lead paint, the toy industry is bracing for another blow that could give parents more reason to rethink their purchases just before the critical holiday shopping season.

Mattel is set to announce the recall of another toy involving a different Chinese supplier as early as Tuesday, according to three people close to the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Details of the latest recall were not immediately available, but one of the three people confirmed early Tuesday that Mattel plans to recall several hundred thousand die cast cars because their paint may contain excessive amounts of lead.

"Oh--waiter!! Another round of Adam Smith!! Yes--I'll take the lead-lined bottle."

China is the Trojan House that Washington should be on guard against.
