The boss of a Chinese toy firm involved in a huge safety recall has committed suicide, Chinese media has said.
Zhang Shuhong, who co-owned the Lee Der Toy Company, was reportedly found dead at his factory in southern China.
About 1.5 million toys made for Fisher Price, a subsidiary of US giant Mattel, were withdrawn from sale earlier this month. Many were made by Lee Der.

Well, yes. "Saving Face" i think its called.
But its still a cowardly way out.
US toymaker Mattel has recalled millions of toys worldwide for the second time in two weeks.The recalled toys include Polly Pocket, Batman Magna, Doggie Daycare and Shonen Jump's One Piece playsets, all with small magnets that could break loose.
Barbie doll Tanner sets and Pixar Sarge die-cast toy cars with lead paint have also been recalled.
Mattel has announced further recalls affecting millions more toys due to lead paint and the presence of small, powerful magnets that could be ingested by children

This faulty/poisonous toy scandal is highly suspicious.
Does anyone else find it incredible that not so long ago thousands of PETS were poisoned in Petfood and now our children are being targetted with TOYS?
The two most vulnerable targets?
I don't find either of these "coincidence".
Boycott chinese products whenever you can.
It's not worth the risk.
