CURIOSITY KILLS: BEWARE THE LEAD MONKEY
curiousgeorgeether.thumbnail.jpg Marvel Enterprises says it has halted shipments of Curious George products made in China. And it says it will issue a recall if testing backs up claims by a nonprofit group that says it found a product had an illegally high amount of lead. The allegation was made by the California-based Center for Environmental Health. It says tests on a Curious George doll revealed 10 times the new legal maximum of lead. C-E-H says that it bought the toy at a Toys “R” Us. Marvel spokesman David Collins says his firm will order a voluntary recall if the tests results are confirmed. [via KYW]
