The firm may recall the toys if emergency testing shows unsafe levels of lead in them, it said.

Marvel said it was taking the action after the advocacy group Center for Environmental Health said it found a Curious George doll containing 10 times the legally-allowed lead level.

"We have already reached out to the Center for Environmental Health for their help in identifying the product they tested and the full details of their testing," the firml said.

"In the meantime, we have halted all shipments of our Curious George product line and are pulling various samples from the factory for rush lead testing."
