Mattel Recalls More Toys

Toy maker says 38,000 Chinese-Made 'Go Diego Go' toys contain excessive levels of lead.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Toy maker Mattel Inc. is recalling about 38,000 ''Go Diego Go'' toys from its Fisher-Price unit because paint on the toys contains excessive levels of lead.
The El Segundo, Calif.-based company issued the recall Thursday along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The ''Go Diego Go'' toy is an orange and yellow boat that can squirt water. The item was manufactured in China and sold nationwide between June and October.
The company says consumers should return the toy to the company. Fisher-Price then will provide a replacement.
In the past few months, Mattel has recalled some 21 million toys, most of them made in China, because of potential dangers from lead paint or from small magnets that can be swallowed.
