    NEW YORK (AP) - The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in
    cooperation with Mattel, has announced that it's recalling about
    800,000 toys that have excessive amounts of lead paint.

    The recall includes 675,000 units of various Barbie accessory
    toys that were manufactured between September 30th, 2006, and
    August 20th, 2007. The action also involves 8,900 different toys
    involving Big Big World 6-in-1 Bongo Band toys from the company's
    Fisher-Price brand. Those products were sold nationwide from July
    through August 2007.

    The announcement marks Mattel's third major recall of
    Chinese-made toys because of lead paint since last month. More than
    20 million toys were recalled in August.

    Lead can cause brain damage when ingested by young children.
    Under current regulations, children's products found to have more
    than .06 percent lead accessible to users are subject to a recall.
