Yep, "a little" of just about everything is allowed - kind of makes you wonder doesn't it?

Yes it does, I mean a little can easily cause harm. It's kinda scary.

Apparently there's a second one on the way.

Apparently the man responsible committed suicide:

Fisher-Price recalling almost a million toys
Chinese vendor used paint with lead on items meant for preschoolers

The recall expands today:


http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/202547451

I started having some thoughts and did some checking around. Could lead and other harmful toxins in toys be  contributing to the higher autism rate?  The anwser is YES!  Children with autism have higher levels of metals in their bodies.

There have been several studies linking Plumbism (lead poisoning) to Autism.

I didn't really have a choice, it's part of the required pediatric checkups.  He had about as low of levels as you can get in the US.  His siblings too, although he's the only one afffected.

We can look at him and see the genetics, his traits are just way more exaggerated than the ones my father has, I have and my husband have, but they are there.  Very definitely.

Another hour of the Diane Rehm's show about toys made in China.

Toy Recall

Quote
Another major toy recall renews concerns over consumer safety protection and Chinese imports.

Oh, and here's a page with a list of links and products for help avoiding made in China.  It's hardly comprehensive, but it's something.

Thanks for the link !
I am in the process of replacing my kitchen dishes and utensils - too many "Made in China" for me to feel safe about. I have some cast iron pieces that I just love, but with all the hubbub I am paranoid they might contain lead. Sad

If you decide to replace any small appliances, KitchenAid is (last I heard, anyway) made in the US, and is, IMO, the highest-quality (affordable) kitchen appliances on the market, in most cases (though Bunn may have them beat on coffeemakers).
