Lawmakers to Investigate Toy Safety
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
NPR's business news starts with Congress ratcheting up pressure on toy makers.
Democrats are launching investigations into toy safety next week. They'll be looking into complaints about federal regulators. They'll also focus on Mattel, which announced a third recall this week of toys imported from China. Mattel and other toy makers have reportedly asked the government to impose mandatory safety-testing standards. That's according to a report in today's New York Times.
