PUBLIC SERICE WARNING: Fisher-Price Toy Recall (Elmo, Sesame Street, Dora, etc)l!

Heads up on this one folks, Fisher-Price is recalling 83 types of toys, estimated to be about 967,000 pieces off the shelves of toy stores in the United States, and around the world. The toys include (but are not limited to) Sesame Street (Elmo, Big Bird), Dora and Diego, and others. The reason for the recall as reported by Fisher-Price's parent company, Mattel, is that the products which were made in China contain over .06 percent lead accessible, which is the percent at which products can be subject to recall by Consumer Product Safety Commission .

The story can be found here (courtesy of The Day, New London, Connecticut based Newspaper).

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission Press Release with product list can be found here. The CPSC Recall Hotline is (800) 638-2772.

Mattel's website also has a product list which can be found here. Or you can call Fisher-Price/Mattel at (800) 916-4498 if you have questions or concerns.

Note to Mattel, you should probably put a warning for parents at the top of your Fisher-Price Website. I noticed that there isn't one as of this writing.
