A Lesson That Thomas Could Teach – David Leonhaedt
From the business section of the New York Times today:
As you have probably heard by now, the toy trains are manufactured in China, and one of the factories that makes them has been using lead paint for the last couple of years. So last week, the United States government urged parents to confiscate 26 different kinds of Thomas toys. The manufacturer, the RC2 Corporation, asked that customers mail back the toys and promised to send lead-free replacements within six to eight weeks.
