Some of my Barbie stuff got recalled this year because of lead paint and magnet problems.

Guess I'll just have to keep my toys out of my mouth.

they just recalled Bindeez in Australia. I think they're called something else overseas. When kids eat them they metabolise into some kinda drug.

Told the girls at work to crack open a pack if they were having a particularly bad day

the glue in the bindeeze turned into GHB wonders how many people have now deliberately swallowed them.

as for the lead- we had a massive multimillion dollar recall earlier in the year.

Wait, it turned into GHB?!

I wish they'd publicised that a bit more, if more people had known all of a sudden uni would've been filled with shifty characters (students) selling glue...
