It has been reported (Fox News Network) today that Mattel will announce more recalls on September 5th, 2008. As with the recalls in August, concerns with lead based paints have caused this most recent recall.
The latest Mattel recall by the world’s largest toy maker will be for a Fisher-Price toy and accessories to a Barbie playset and involves several hundred thousand units, according to two persons briefed by Mattel executives who asked for anonymity because the company has not yet formally announced the action. It could not be learned whether the toys were made in different Chinese factories. Full details will not be known until Mattel makes the official announcement on Wednesday.
Is it time to start thinking about making more products here?
