The United States may be at risk for a terrorist attack, but at least the U.S. government is protecting the health of its toy eating children.   To quote Janet Napolitono, head of  Homeland Security, when it comes to  protecting kids from dangerous toys, “the system worked.”  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of a toy military figure made by Jide Trading.  Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.  Hazard: The surface paint on the toy contains excessive levels of lead violating the federal lead paint standard.  Incidents/Injuries:  None reported.
