Did he kill himself by chewing on some plastic toys?

Yep. Commited sucide over the recalls. Honorable way to go? No way. It's a coward act that he won't face the music.

      BEIJING [!-- /dateline --]-- The head of a Chinese toy manufacturing company at the center of a huge U.S. recall has committed suicide, a state-run newspaper said Monday. Zhang Shuhong, who co-owned Lee Der Industrial Co. Ltd., killed himself at a warehouse over the weekend, days after China announced it had temporarily banned exports by the company, the Southern Metropolis Daily said.

 Lee Der made 967,000 toys recalled earlier this month by Mattel Inc. because they were made with paint found to have excessive amounts of lead. The plastic preschool toys, sold under the Fisher-Price brand in the U.S., included the popular Big Bird, Elmo, Dora and Diego characters.

 It was among the largest recalls in recent months involving Chinese products, which have come under fire for globally for containing potentially dangerous high levels of chemicals and toxins.

apparently that's what the officials do over there. The Japanese Agriculture minister did the same thing when the media and public learned he was a fraud.

I'm wondering if he really had a choice in the matter.

The japanese guy would have just gone to jail.

Interesting how Mattel threw in the magnetic hazard recall with the lead paint recall and announced both were manufactured in China.........to make it appear the bad toy design was not theirs but China's

Youre RIGHT !  Good point 49er.  Very interesting indeed.

  I always thought that the little magnet thing was a choking hazzard....but what actually can happen if a child swallows more than one....is when travelling through the intestines separately....they can join up and actually 'clamp off' a section creating a situation where a blockage is certain.  They showed an x-ray and diagram of a child who had died from this very cause.

That is an interesting point indeed, 49er. Regardless, Mattel should be held responsible for the toys, not just China. It is THEIR stamp and brand on the toys, THEIR products and they should be liable for class-suit actions from the consumers.

I agree Lise.  It's Mattel's responsibility all the way.

consummer advocates have been pressuring Mattel to recall the magnetic toys for months but they scheduled this recall with the lead paint problem and made sure to point out they were manufactured in China.......now all you see and read in the news is the paint issue and not the bad design.

  Definitely Mattel should be accountable for the lead problem.  It was their contractor who produced the toys............they have the ultimate responsibility for the quality control

It was Mattel's fault as they stamp their brand on the products. They should be held responsible if their subcontractor makes mistakes or takes short-cuts.
