Default Chinese Paint

Due to yesterday's recall of lead-tainted Mattel toys, I encourage everyone to consider that PE Eagles are also made in China. I doubt that forum members chew on our Eagles or that we let small children play with them -- but it is worth thinking about.

So true. On the flip side, European, British and North American toy makers may very well reap the benefit this holiday season. I know I'm going to be a lot more careful on what toys I buy.

The lead issue is about children chewing on the toys. I sincerely hope that nobody here engages in any kind of oral worship of their eagle collection!!!

I thought it was just Sarge from Mattel's Cars run.... we have the made in Taiwan version, but the "supercharged" Chinese Sarge has too much lead to the peddle. Are we saying that there are more toys???

I think most of PE's lead has slipped into the TB2 colour.

Crazy to think that we are still dealing with this for NEW products in the
21 C.

Anyone chews my eagles it won't be lead poisoning they'll be worrying about!!!

It came to mind for me because I've given two PE Eagles as gifts to friends with children.

Having learned that its about 18000000 products of various sorts I think your warning is a wise one. I'll bet Mattel is real impressed. I hope its not their Hotwheels line or they may be in real strife...Barbie etal is bad enough.
