Total Recall

In June, the maker of Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway toys recalled 1.5 million of them because they contained lead paint. As a nice gesture, RC2 Corp. sent “bonus gifts” to customers who turned in the recalled toys. Now it turns out that 2,000 of the “Toad” train cars they sent out in the bonus shipment were made with paint that has up to four times the acceptable level of lead and they’ve been recalled too. Hopefully the letter of apology they send customers won’t be printed using lead-based ink on asbestos-laced paper and include anthrax-coated small parts a small child could choke on.
