Where is the RESPONSIBILITY of the American CEO?

Reading an article in the paper about the Mattel CEO, Robert Eckert, on his testimony before Congress, and in the middle, it hit me:

Where is the RESPONSIBILITY of the American CEO?

One of the men over in China kills himself in 'shame', and Mr. Eckert has overseen the flooding of the American toy market, with dangerous toys to our children.

Mattel has recalled TWENTY ONE MILLION TOYS.


And, the best he can do is a ' My bad, we're going to do better'?'

Why does he have a job after selling our children poisonous toys?

I don't have any children, but I don't think you need to in order to grasp that this man shouldn't be employed by Mattel anymore.

Just wondering.

I guess if Mattel has a disastrous Christmas is when their CEO will leave.

If anything should show parents how much this company ultimately doesn't care about their children, this should.

Did you see Yahoo news?

"Mattel takes full responsibility for these recalls and apologizes personally to you, the Chinese people,
and all of our customers who received the toys," Thomas A. Debrowski, Mattel's executive vice president for worldwide operations, told Li.
