Every year thousands of children are injured by dangerous products. Dangers can range from flammability to suffocation risk to choking dangers. When a product is discovered to be dangerous, it is the obligation of the manufacturer and the Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a recall. Thousands of children’s products are taken off the shelves every year. Here are some recently recalled children’s products.
