BENTONVILLE, Arkansas - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is recalling toy animals made in China because of excessive lead levels discovered since it stepped up safety testing in August, the Bentonville, Arkansas-based retailer said Friday.

In a news release, the largest U.S. retailer and toy seller described the recalled items as sets of realistic-looking farm animals, jungle animals and dinosaurs.

The toys are sold in loose sets in cellophane-type bags without a brand name. Wal-Mart said independent testing revealed excessive levels of lead in the material the toys are made of

My husband and I have been wondering about the lead filled toys and Autism. The toys didn't just suddenly develop a lead problem, they have been sold to kids for years now. Has anyone done a study to see if the rise in Autism is related to the percentage or number of toys imported from China?

Never thought about that but you are right they didn't just pop up. The whole thing is scary. I am going to buy one of those home lead pen kits where you can test for lead at home. I heard about them now i just have to find where you can get one.
