MATTEL : Lawmakers Say Mattel Broke Word on Lead

Dozens of members of Congress sent a letter Tuesday to the chief executive of Mattel, accusing the company of not living up to its promise to keep lead-tainted toys out of children’s hands.

The letter was prompted by Mattel’s decision not to issue a nationwide recall of a blood-pressure cuff in a toy medical kit sold under the Fisher-Price brand, recalled on Dec 4th 2007. The legislators said they were disturbed by the company’s “lack of action.”
