Mattel Inc. is expected to announce yet another batch of toy recalls Wednesday, because they may contain high levels of lead paint.

This is the third time this summer the toy corporation has had to issue such recalls.

This time around three Fischer Price toys and accessories to seven different Barbie playsets are being recalled. The Fischer Price toys are part of the Geotrax System and the It's A Big Big World set.

Since announcing the first recall back in August, Mattel CEO Bob Eckert has issued a statement saying the corporation has put stricter testing policies into place for both the paint and finished toys.

He also says the company has increased the number of random inspections in all stages of toy production.
