Two new recalls of products made in China are widening concerns.

Mattel on Tuesday announced its second recall this month of toys made in China. This time, it's recalling 9 million toys, including die-cast cars and magnetic toys.

And a high-end toiletries company — Gilchrist & Soames — is recalling toothpaste that has been in luxury hotels in the U.S. and around the world after discovering that it contains dangerous chemicals.
