Company to pay $200K after importing toys with lead

A company has agreed to pay a product liability settlement in the amount of $200,000. The settlement will settle allegations that it violated U.S. law when it imported the Thomas and Friends, Curious George, and Winnie the Pooh toys that had high levels of lead in them and posed dangers to children who used the toys. The Consumer Product Safety Commission had alleged that the company imported tens of thousands of toys that violated the federal lead paint ban and then distributed them to retail stores.
