PULLING 11 TOYS, AFFECTING MORE THAN

800-THOUSAND UNITS - INCLUDING BARBIE
FURNITURE, THE GEO TRAX LOCOMOTIVE, AND

BONGO BAND DRUMS.(/graphic)



MANY OF THESE PRODUCTS WERE
MANUFACTERED AS RECENTLY AS LAST MONTH,

NIGHTMARE ON THEIR HANDS, MATTEL
EXECUTIVES TRIED TO MINIMIZE THE

assure consumers we're working hard and
fast.... Mattel takes its promises

seriously, most importantly our promise
to ensure the safety of children."



IT'S THE LATEST IN A RECENT WAVE OF
RECALLED CHINESE-MADE PRODUCTS,
EVERYTHING

FROM TOYS TO TOOTHPASTE TO SEAFOOD.
SINCE THE BEGINNING OF AUGUST, MATTEL
HAS

RECALLED 21-MILLION TOYS...AND
CONSUMERS ARE GROWING WARY OF THAT

"MADE-IN-CHINA" LABEL.



(SOT MOS 1): why not american-made?



(SOT MOS 2): cheap labor's doing this

CHINESE VENDORS ARE USUALLY TO BLAME
BUT SAFETY OFFICIALS SAY THAT'S NO
EXCUSE.



(SOT-Patty Davis, Consumer Products


Safety Commission:) "It is the
obligation

of the US firm to make sure that any
products they bring into the United

States meet those US laws."




80-PERCENT OF U-S TOYS ARE MADE IN
CHINA AND WITH THE HOLIDAY SEASON
AROUND

THE CORNER - INSTEAD OF STOCKING UP,
STORES ARE SWEEPING SHELVES CLEAN.

not always that simple.

Though Felter denied trying to
kill Daisy Mae, evidence was presented
in court indicating Felter did try to
put the dog down herself.

She allegedly gave the dog two
dozen pain pills. She was even said to
be ready to use anti-freeze.

In a situation like that, Doctor
Karras says, it might be best if a
professional goes ahead and puts the
animal to sleep.

While the best interests of
clients and their patients occasionally
collide, an experienced veterinarian
can often glean more from the pet than
