A Leicestershire company which sold children's toys containing toxins above the legal safe level has been fined £16,500.
Leicestershire County Council Trading Standards officers conducted a test purchase operation and found a plastic doll contained 70 times the legal level of phthalates and a bow and arrow set was 33 times over.
The doll was bought at a 99p store in Loughborough.
At court, the company admitted to two charges of failing to comply with legal regulations and received a fine of £10,000 in total.
Trading standards officers will be at Bescot Market in Walsall today hunting for dolls on sale, which contain chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and infertility in men.
Officers first received complaints about these products early in 2013 and visited traders to ensure they were taken off sale. But they now fear that they were available to buy at the market last weekend.
The dolls have distinctive fruit shaped heads but Trading Standards Officers are also concerned about similar soft dolls wearing animal outfits or in a "crawling" pose wearing polka dot dresses.
A GP from Nottingham has said it is "unacceptable" that a poisonous chemical has been found in toy dolls on sale in shops in the Midlands.
Dr Ian Campbell said: "I'm very concerned because there is no safe level of this chemical and we know that it causes problems with cancer, problems with sperm count with adult males and problems with the liver and kidneys.
"It's is unacceptable that children have been exposed to this chemical in this way."
