Mattel Exec Tries Hand At Judaism, But Foreskin Still Shows

In honor of the upcoming holiday, Mattel’s executive vice president, Thomas Debrowski, issue an apology to China on behalf of Mattel, for a massive number of recalls on toys following the revelation that some had contained excessive levels of lead paint. “Mattel takes full responsibility for these recalls and apologizes personally to you, the Chinese people and all of our customers who received the toys,” Debrowski said in a press conference today. Then he added in a statement that the 21 million take-backs were “overly inclusive, including toys that may not have had lead in paint in excess of U.S. standards.” The reason cited for the (possibly) unnecessarily high number of recalls was that the company “puts safety first.”
So, you know, if you think about it, Mattel’s not really at fault here. If the toy-maker is guilty of anything, it’s being too cautious. And not to go there, but perhaps Mattel’s the one that deserves the apology. (Which is exactly how the DBJ’s celebrate Yom Kippur—by asking others to atone for what they’ve done to us).
