Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - The recent recall of millions of toys by US manufacturer Mattel, over safety concerns including lead content, has raised alarm bells worldwide. This issue is a concern to all, because public health and safety is at stake. An updated directive is critical to protecting our domestic interests, and children's health. I call on the Commission to take action on the problem of dangerous products and consider an alternative regulatory approach. Chinese authorities must take appropriate action to improve their standards of production, but equally important is the duty of toy companies, who order products from the Far East in order to benefit from lower costs, to ensure that safety standards are met. Product safety is a matter of public health and this issue needs immediate attention.
