mattel's kiss of death

Is playing with Elmo from Sesame Street safe?
In my recent blog regarding a Greener Apple, never would have it crossed my mind that even an established and trusted company such as mattel would also be a hazard to our child's health. But in fairness to mattel, they quickly made recalls from some of their hazardous products made by their contractors from China(complete list of recalled products). The toys containing-approved paint pigment with lead has long been banned in the market for a long time and to such surprise went under the eyes of the company. Recalling their products may be a kiss-of-death to mattel, however we should also praise their dedication to their costumers. On the other hand, I still feel that mattel should do more than just recalling their products, better yet replace the ones they sold with a safer product, if your child is still willing to part ways with the original toy.
