Mattel Recall

In early August 2007, Mattel performed a nationwide recall on their Fisher-Price Toys and Pixar Car toy "Sarge".  They discovered both product lines contained Lead Paint. 

Fyi- Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

While 1.5 million of the Fisher-Price product line representing various Nickelodeon and Sesame Street characters were sold, 253,000 of the Pixar's "Sarge" car were also sold. For many consumers returning from summer vacation, they might find that they are working to filter out recalled toys before they back up their Orlando rental home and head to the airport.  The speed and numbers of recalls lately have been fast and large and Mattel's is one of the largest next to the dog food recalls from this spring.

If you have any of the named products, please contact Mattel.
