Mattel recalls more toys

Parents listen up because it is time for another look at your child's toy box.

Mattel announced another recall today once again, due to high levels of lead in toys from China.

This is the toymaker's third recall this summer and Mattel says it discovered the problem after extensive testing but some say parents should pull more than just the recalled toys.

"I would get rid of all toys from China... the most important thing to know about lead is prevention because once you get it there's no way to
get rid of it," says Dr. William Goldman of the Virginia Medical Center.

The biggest worry is young kids putting lead-tainted toys in their mouths.

Lead testing is standard for children under age two but you can have your kids re-tested, to see if they have been exposed.
