Marvel Halts Curious George Toy Shipments Over Lead Concerns

Marvel Enterprises Inc. is halted shipments of its Chinese-made Curious George products to retailers.

The company says it will issue a recall if testing confirms an Oakland-based nonprofit's charges that the items contain illegally high amounts of lead.

The Oakland-based Center for Environmental Health sent Marvel a legal notice today alleging that it had purchased a Curious George doll that contained 10 times the legal maximum of lead at a Toys "R" Us.
