California on Monday launched a lawsuit against 20 companies accusing them of manufacturing or selling toys with illegal quantities of lead, a statement said...

Each violation of the California law known as Proposition 65 was punishable by a fine of up to 2,500 dollars, in theory leaving the firms named in the suit facing a multi-million dollar damages claim.

Companies named in the suit include: Mattel, Fisher-Price, Michaels Stores, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, KB Toys, Costco Wholesale, A&A Global Industries, RC2 Corporation, Eveready Battery Company, Kids II, Kmart, Marvel Entertainment and Toy Investments...

Brown told the Times he expected the companies to settle the lawsuit by agreeing to "conditions such as testing or putting independent monitors in foreign countries."
