Thomas and Friends Product Recall

Disturbing news: Certain Thomas and Friends toys contain lead and are being recalled worldwide by manufacturer RC2 Corporation.

In the Philippines, consumers are directed to contact local distributor Maxibear (owned by Sen. Pia Cayetano and husband) which has issued its own recall advice. From the product list and photos, it appears that #5 Engine James and other red-colored characters are the tainted lot.

Checked our toy bin and sure enough, #5 and his coal tender were mingling with the rest of them. Darn it, James, you were always clashing with Thomas --not just color-wise-- and now you've gone and brought lead into the house. I hear Sir Topham Hat is so pissed he's thinking of paint-scraping you alive.
