On Itchmo's blog there is an article from ConsumerAffairs.com about WalMart and lead in pet toys. http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2007/09/pet_food_recalls74.html  I don't think pet toys will ever be safe while we are paying Nancy Nord to be acting chairman of the CPSC.  She's got to be up there with Sundloff and Duan-o.
Read this Washington Post article. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/09/12/AR2007091202396.html?referrer=emailarticle
If kids toys won't be safe, heaven help our pets! Do you think she could have said "Ask China" one more time?  It isn't just China that's the problem, when our regulatory agencies' chairs act like that.  Suck up to the corporations and sneer at the Senators and the "consumers." Our tax dollars at work. 

(I posted links for making pet toys and I'm going to do it.  Everyone with pets on my holiday list gets homemade pet toys this year.)
