Toy Recall

More than 90,000 children's toys have been recalled for containing dangerous levels of lead. That's the word from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

J.C. Penney is recalling more than 70,000 toys, including Chinese-made Winnie the Pooh play sets and art kits made in Taiwan and Vietnam.

The company says an independent laboratory began the process of performing additional tests on its painted toys in August.

A government safety spokeswoman says this round of toy recalls is the direct result of the commitment that was made earlier this summer to rid the shelves of contaminated products. She says the number of toys in violation are expected to go down.
