Mattel Apologizes To China For Recent Toy Recall

Toy-maker Mattel issued an apology to China taking full responsibility for recent recalls.

Mattel officials blames design flaws, not Chinese manufacturing plants for the massive recall of lead-tainted toys.

Officials for the manufacturing plants accepted the apology saying they hope the toy-giant learns from the mistake.

Some Beijing officials were angered after Mattel blamed the manufacturing plants, saying it was part of a campaign to hurt Chinese-made goods.

Mattel recently announced plans to improve its safety codes and increase the number of unannounced inspections.
