Mattel settles lead poison suit

December 15, 2008

The toy company will pay 38 states $12 million settlement for claims that its toys manufactured in China contained excessive lead.  That figures out to be $300,000 per state.   Is that about the cost of the lawsuits?

Mattel is also suppose to adhere to stricter for lead in toys.  How strict?  I’m not sure  this is big consumer victory.  I’ll see what others say.
