Toxic dolls from China seized before distribution
By: Jamel Valencia
More than 200,000 toy dolls from China are being confiscated due to high levels of a toxic chemical called phthalates.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and Consumer Product Safety Commission investigators seized the dolls in 10 shipments valued at nearly $500,000 at the ports of Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Norfolk, Va., Memphis,Tenn., Newark, N.J., Portland, Ore., and Savannah, Ga.
The dolls pose a threat to the public, particularly children, said federal officials.
