Mattel pressed on lead content

From Times Wire Services

More than 50 federal lawmakers are demanding that Mattel Inc. stop selling toys that contain any lead, saying the toy maker is not going far enough to address safety concerns.

The demand was in a letter released by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.).

El Segundo-based Mattel recalled millions of Chinese-made toys last year because of concerns that lead paint exceeded U.S. standards.
