has been on a roll of late with swank new toys
, the firm has apparently hit a rough patch
after being forced to recall
"millions of toys including 436,000 die-cast cars." The wee roadsters purportedly "contained excessive amounts of lead," and now a class action lawsuit
has been filed that aims to force the firm to "pay for the testing of children who might have gotten lead poisoning from the toys." Reportedly, representatives from Mattel were unavailable to comment, but the outfit's CEO has stated that "the company's more aggressive testing methods to uncover tainted toys may lead to more recalls" in the future.
