Toy Recall Update: Mattel Recalls 9 Million Toys

Mattel is voluntarily recalling 9 million of its toys - including Sarge brand cars; Batman action figures; and Barbie, Doggie Daycare, and Polly Pocket play sets - because of hazards to children, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Aug. 14.
