This is SO infuriating.
They are recalling several Thomas the Train peices sold between 2004-2007 because the paint contains LEAD. Thats right, the CEO makes half a Million dollars and year and they are being cheap and using paint with lead at the expense of our children!!!!!!!
While its unacceptable, its not unbelievable. If you've read my blog before you know that the products our government allows to be sold in our country are not as safe as we think they are.
Here is the link with PICTURES of what is being recalled. Supposedly they will replace it for you if you send it in but who really wants another toy from this company? I sure dont. I want my $20 back (actually my $100s of dollars back!).
And I want them to pay to have my children lead tested. My sweet baby girl has had those trains in her mouth before! And Im sure thousands of other babies have too (Before we can get to them to take it away of course!). I was already mad that a $20 train's paint would chip so easily .... and now it may have contaminated all their other toys.
I dont know that much about lead accept that NO amount is a safe amount, especially not for the brain of a developing child.
