While this has been in the news before, this is the first we've heard about it. An interesting aside is that sex toys aren't regulated because they are considered "novelty items" that are not for use. Yeeeah. Okay.

Rather than throw out all those phthalates-laden sex toys, though, Babeland suggests practicing safe sex with your toys and using a condom. Huzzah!
