CHINA: THE LATEST REGARDING THE TOY RECALLS

OK, so China’s factory produced toys that were deemed unsafe for kids. Lead paint was used and falling magnets that kids can swallow were on some of the toys. However, it is turning out that Mattel, the company that issued the massive recall was partly at fault. The falling magnets were caused by Mattel’s design flaw and Chinese manufacturers were made to look bad. Mattel apologized but in my opinion, the sorry came quite late. It simply wasn’t issued early enough. It’s a good thing that China took the late apology quite well and no fiery complaints followed. Perhaps, the government realized that their factories are accountable for most of the blame.
