Large recall

 

The play-set recalls were announced on Mattel's website, while the warning over the die-cast cars was announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission in Washington.

 

Nancy A Nord, acting CPSC chairman, said no injuries had been reported with any of the products involved in the recall.

 

"The scope of these recalls is intentionally large to prevent any injuries from occurring," she said.

 

The toy industry has issued several recalls for products made in China in recent weeks.

 

More than 80 per cent of toys sold worldwide are made in China, and the string of recalls had prompted nervousness among toy retailers that shoppers will not purchase their products.
