Why You Shouldn't Stick Toys in Your Mouth

The full list of those recalled Mattel and Fisher Price toys.

For those of you wondering exactly which Mattel toys might give your child lead poisoning, the Attorney General and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission have put out a list and details of what to do with these dangerous toys.

The recall list includes a bunch of Batman, Barbie, Doggie Daycare, Shonen Jump, and Polly Pocket toys, a slew of Fisher Price products, plus the 2 1/2 inch metal Sarge from Disney/Pixar's Cars. Chronic genuinely feels for those parents that have to now mount Operation Grinch and explain to their kids why they're taking their toys away.

We live in dark times. If you can't trust Barbie's pooper scooper, what can you trust?
