More than a million Chinese-made Mattel/Fisher-Price products, including Sesame Street character toys, are being recalled because their paint may contain toxic levels of lead, Bloomberg and other media reported. The 83 designs are listed on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website. Sesame Workshop said it “will develop more stringent procedures” to hold licensees to safety standards. The products had been sold since May, Mattel’s news release said. Pictured: one of the Sesame Street character toys on the CPSC website.
