Business briefs: Disney will test toys

Following the recall of millions of toys by Mattel Inc. (MAT), The Walt Disney Co. (DIS) said Monday that it will independently test toys featuring its characters. The media and entertainment conglomerate will hire companies to randomly buy Disney-branded toys from store shelves and test for lead paint and other safety issues such as small parts that could come loose.

OPEC

OPEC weighed a push by some members Monday to modestly boost its production quota amid stubbornly high oil prices and expectations of a spike later this year in the global demand for crude. On the eve of today’s meeting, half a dozen key members all said they believed the markets were amply supplied and the official output quota of 25.8 million barrels a day should stand.
