Toy Standards

Iowa is receiving a quarter of a million dollars in a settlement from toy companies.  The Iowa Attorney General's office reports that Mattel is paying 12-million dollars to states after lead paint was found in toys.  Iowa's share is about 214-thousand dollars.  Mattel and Fisher-Price have recalled 2-million toys for excessive lead levels in surface paints.  The toys were made in China.  A "Justgreen Partnership" survey finds that of 15-hundred toys tested, one in three contained medium to high levels of lead, cadmium, arsenic and other chemicals.  The most contaminated category was children's jewelry.
