The toy company, Mattel, was involved in one of the biggest recalls in its history in 2007. These toys contained things like lead and small magnets.  Some toys that were recalled that summer were found to be extremely dangerous to children, like the small magnets that were able to be swallowed by small children.  As a result of these recalls, safety concerns have increased. Some toy companies have increased safety checks and have investigated their toys that are manufactured in China. In addition, one contract manufacturer in China, has lost their export license and went out of business, as the result of using lead paint on Mattel toys.
