After Major Ruling on Unsafe Lead Levels in Paint, Experts Reveal How You Can Ensure Your Kids Are Safe
Date:6/19/2009

ANAHEIM, Calif., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Mattel, Inc. and its subsidiary, Fisher-Price, have been fined $2.3 million for importing and selling toys containing high levels of lead. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the toymaker violated a federal ban on lead paint in toys. The companies deny having intentionally violated the ban. The fine is a result of a number of recalls by Mattel and Fisher-Price in 2007, when the companies recalled toys including Elmo, Barbie, Big Bird, and Dora because of excessive levels of lead.

In 2007, over 6 million toys imported from China were recalled for high levels of lead. Could you already have these unsafe toys in your home? Are your children playing with them right now?

Healthy home experts Lisa and Ron Beres specialize in how people can make their homes and offices safer, healthier, and greener. Invite this green team to reveal:

  • How parents can test their children's toys for lead paint in less than 5 minutes.
  • Why 38 million homes have lead in them and where you can find it.
  • Why asthma rates have doubled since the 1980s and increased 160% in children under the age of 5.
  • Why children in the U.S. are born with an average of 200 chemicals already in their blood.
  • How you can have a healthier and greener home in half the time for half the cost.
