Possible lead contamination halts Marvel toy shipment

Marvel Entertainment Inc., the publisher of "Hulk" comic books, halted shipments of "Curious George" toys from China because of possible lead contamination.

The toys will be recalled if tests confirm they are unsafe, the company said today in an e-mailed statement. Marvel stopped shipments after the Center for Environmental Health, a private watchdog group, said a "Curious George" doll bought from Toys "R" Us had more than 10 times the legal limit for lead paint.
