A chain in the UK just announced it was pulling two items from its shelves and launching afurther investigation.

Okay we need to really start testing anything coming over from China. One item pulled was made up of 93% lead. lead at those levels if a toddler chews on it, can cause permant brain damage or even death.

This comes on the heels of the thomas the Tank engine recalls (We had several of those products) and Mattel recalling over 18 million products over material safety concerns.

The effects of lead are well known even to the ChiCom government. So given the total disregard for the safety of our children and the total number involved, is this some sort of deliberate attempt?

Yes the manufactures also bear responsability, but I would be very surprised if they specified the use of lead.

Good lord...how it is that these types of things ever make it into the market in modern times amazes me. I have recently heard that China is also prohibiting leaded fuel now as well, which will pose a huge environmental risk in a country going through a modern day industrialization period. I find it completely ridiculous that a country would allow this to take place when the dangers of leaded materials are almost common knowledge in modern society.
