September 6, 2007

In yet another sign that the outsourcing of US jobs is cheapening the life of even the youngest among us, El Segundo, California-based toy company, Mattel , announced its 3rd recall this year due to concerns about lead paint in more than 11 products manufactured in China. Among the more than 850,000 toys being recalled worldwide are public TV icon Dora the Explorer and several items from global legend Barbie’s house.

Even dogs and cats can’t escape the effects of buying the American Dream on the cheap as the US Consumer Product Saftey Commission also announced that Barbie’s Dream Puppy House™ (lead paint on dog) and Barbie’s Dream Kitty Condo™ Playset (lead paint on cat) were starting to resemble the lead paint-laced homes in poorer neighborhoods where kids play with Dora and Barbie.
