Curiouser And Curiouser
Another day, another recall. Now lots of parents are beating this drum. It seems everyone is fed up with the dangerous toys on the shelves of our favorite stores. Some Curious George plush dolls are the latest popular toy made in China found to be contaminated with dangerous levels of lead, plus kids sunglasses (ZZ Top anyone?) which are sold at Dollar General stores. Our consumer correspondent Susan Koeppen got to the bottom of a common denominator in the seemingly bottomless pit of bad toys: the ones with red and yellow paint are literally a red flag -- those are the colors that contain the highest lead percentage. Many parents tell us they won't buy any toys from China this holiday season, while the vast majority of moms and dads blame the government for not taking enough action. We will keep pressing! In the meantime, have a great weekend. I am starting holiday shopping. Think I'll stick to books and music this year!© 2007 CBS Interactive Inc.. All Rights Reserved.
