It appears there's a real possibility of that happening, according to the article Shoppers must do their homework amid rash of recalls:

In the CPSC's fiscal year 2007 (October 2006 through September 2007), 61 toys were recalled. Fifty-two of them were made in China, and 19 of those were recalled for lead-paint violations. In the CPSC's fiscal year 2008 -- since Oct. 1 -- an additional 25 toys have been recalled. All were made in China, and the majority contained lead paint. Wolfson said consumers should expect more toy recalls in November and December.

I just wanted to take a moment to say how we value the compliance service we have received from Nexreg. In the past two years our company has been faced with many challenges related to the sales of hazardous products in the US and Canada and Nexreg has been an excellent resource to help us ensure compliance to the ever changing regulatory environment.
