After finding that its Toy Story 3 Bowling Game violated the lead paint levels allowed under the Federal guidelines, G.A. Gertmenian and Sons, LLC voluntarily recalled its product. But here's what disturbs me about this particular product recall:

The "new" permissible lead level requirements have been on the books for over two (2) years - since February 10, 2009.

Simply put, there is no excuse for this; these products  - roughly 600 units - were almost certainly manufactured and put into the stream of commerce well after that law became effective. Under the circumstances, I do not understand why there is no stiffer penalty for this manufacturer than simply being compelled to issue a voluntary recall.

A picture of the recalled product with the identifying information is below.
