The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of two more children's products: Curious George plush dolls sold at toy and department stores, and children's sunglasses sold at Dollar General.
The adage "look and you shall find" seems to be continually proven true. As with past recalls a record number this fall these products were made in China.
Lead, for anyone who hasn't heard by now, is nothing you want your children playing with. It can cause permanent brain damage, lowering IQ or possibly even leading to violent behavior.
