We have been rigorously testing and re- testing our Happy Meal toys for decades. § Happy Meal toys are tested time and time again. They’re backed by a proactive safety program that starts with the design of the toy and continues throughout the entire process, long before a Happy Meal toy makes it to the production line. § When it comes to toy safety, we take nothing for granted. We remain ever vigilant and continue to watch every step of the process. § McDonald’s suppliers do not use lead-based paint on Happy Meal toys. This safety step has been a McDonald’s mandate for more than 20 years. § That’s why the recent toy recalls have nothing to do with McDonald’s, or our Happy Meal toys
