I am Anti-China imports BIG TIME. But that out of the way, I think it is way over blown. Exactly how are your children going to conjest the lead? They would have to eat the stuff to do that.
The same parent who is up in arms about this and took all the recalled Mattel toys away from his child handed that same child a happy meal with frys an hour later.
We worry about too damn much these days. I mean, I am going to do my best. But yesterday when I told my son to go wash his hands after he had handled a lead weight I felt like a fool. When you talk about ODDS, we are talking a TINY, TINY fraction of a chance of harm. My son has a much bigger chance at being hit by a car driving up on the sidewalk as he rides his bike than from that lead.
