    Toxic Toys seized in Michigan

    (This is a GREAT STORY-)

    http://www.wnem.com/story/16615615/a...gan?hpt=us_bn6

    CPSC requested that a shipping container full of toys, from China, be held in Detroit prior to distribution. (the destination retailer is not named in the story.) The toys were tested and found to be completely unsafe for the US Market-finally a pre emptive strike against lead content in toys!!!!!

    Awesome!

    Besides jobs for Americans, this is another reason we need to bring manufacturing HOME to the US! Maybe it would cost a little more, but I think jobs, and consumer safety (especially for children) are well worth the extra $$.
