General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and quarantine: Mattel's third recall of toy paint lead dissolution is qualified

March 11, 2008

[China paint information] China's General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine announced the preliminary investigation results and handling of Mattel's third recall of toys made in China on March. The investigation showed that the amount of lead dissolved in the paint of all recalled toys was qualified; The export of the products of the same series of the three recalled enterprises has been suspended, and the export can be resumed only after the rectification is qualified

recently, Mattel announced a voluntary recall of toys made in China for the third time after recalling more than 20 million toys made in China worldwide. Among the toys recalled before, 85% were designed and produced according to the requirements of American importers; Only 15% of them do not meet the requirements of the United States

the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China immediately contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commission of the United States to learn about the relevant situation. All spaces can be conditioned through the lifting and lowering of the lower crossbeam and launched an investigation

it is preliminarily understood that 675000 pieces of Barbie series toys from a Shenzhen enterprise were recalled this time. According to the 24 test reports provided by Mattel, it was found that 6 of the test reports reflected that the total lead exceeded the limit, but the 6 test reports only reflected that the total lead of 3 of the 7 recalled toys exceeded the limit, while the total lead test results of the other 4 toys met the American standards. 23 of the 24 test reports were tested for lead dissolution, and the results were in line with American standards

in addition, 90000 Fisher locomotive toys produced by a Guangdong enterprise were recalled, of which 1082 were still in the warehouse of the manufacturer. According to the sampling inspection of toys in stock by the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China, the total amount of lead in the paint on the toys and the amount of lead dissolved are in line with the American standards

meanwhile, the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China (AQSIQ) said that after preliminary investigation, the test data of the total amount of lead in the recalled toys were quite different due to different testing laboratories

the inspection agencies involved in the toy incident include Mattel laboratories, SGS, BV, its, CTI, Guangdong Inspection and Quarantine Bureau and Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau. The test results of toys of the same style in different laboratories are qualified and unqualified, and the data are also very different. AQSIQ said it would conduct further investigation and demonstration

China is the world's largest toy exporter. In 2006, China exported 22billion toys, accounting for 60% of the global total. However, there are still differences in the technical requirements for lead in toy paint coatings among countries. The standard difference is also one of the important reasons for the frequent problems in product quality and food safety between China and other countries as a continuous production process for fiber-reinforced profiles and round bars

because the excessive amount of lead dissolved in toy paint is indeed harmful to human health, toy standards in most countries stipulate the amount of lead dissolved in paint. For countries that do not have requirements on the amount of lead dissolved in toy paint, toys exported by China must also meet China's mandatory standards before they can be exported

the future prospects of China's national toy mandatory technical specifications, international iso8124-3 toy safety standards and EU EN71-3 toy safety standards are expected to set the lead dissolvable limit in toy paint at 90mg/kg. Most countries in the world also evaluate whether the paint on toys is qualified according to the soluble limit of lead

however, in addition to providing a limit of 90mg/kg for lead dissolution in toy paint, the United States also has a limit of 600mg/kg for the total amount of lead in paint. Advanced third-generation aluminum lithium alloy plates are widely used in the front and other straight sections of the C919 fuselage manufactured by AVIC Hongdu aircraft company and the fuselage and ailerons of the C919 large passenger aircraft manufactured by AVIC Xi'an aircraft company

the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China also announced the handling of the three toy recalled enterprises, but did not disclose the specific names of the three enterprises:

-- the export of the recalled products of the three enterprises with the same series of products was suspended, and the enterprises were helped to rectify and rectify, and the products could be exported only after they passed the rectification

-- suspend the outsourcing production of the three enterprises, and require the enterprises undertaking the outsourcing processing to obtain the export quality license. At the same time, strict quality control system shall be formulated for the paint used by the outsourcing processing enterprises

-- the three enterprises are required to conduct a comprehensive self-examination of quality and safety monitoring, and Guangdong Inspection and Quarantine Bureau and Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau will conduct an on-site review of the self-examination of the three enterprises
