SEATTLE, Aug. 2, 2007 LAWFUEL – The Fast Law Newswire — Keller Rohrback L.L.P.
(www.seattleclassaction.com) is currently investigating toymaker Fisher-Price’s worldwide recall of approximately 1.5 million Chinese-made toys due to lead paint contamination. Lead paint has been linked to health problems in children, including brain damage. The recall includes 83 types of toys, including the popular Big Bird, Elmo, Dora and Diego characters. Almost 967,000 plastic preschool toys made by a Chinese vendor were sold in the United States between May and August. For more information about which toys have been recalled, see:
Keller Rohrback believes that this issue of coating children’s toys in lead paint warrants a nation-wide response from outraged parents and caregivers on behalf of children. We offer unique prospective and experience related to handling class actions of this sort.
