Chinese toys banned

Sujay Mehdudia

The ban, notified by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade, will remain valid for six months. However, the government gave no reason for slapping the ban.

China’s toy industry has come under close scrutiny since millions of goods were recalled globally last year amid fears that they were made with toxic lead paints or had dangerous design flaws.
