Manufacturers of toys and other products related to children have a heightened responsibility for the safety of children, who can be easily injured if a toy or product is defective. What should you do if your child received an unsafe toy this past holiday season?
In the past decade make than 100,000 children have suffered toy related injuries each year in the US. Certain age groups of children face different risks than others based on their use of a certain type of toy. Toys that contain choking hazards are more dangerous to toddlers, while motorized toys tend to be more dangerous for older children. Toys may be defective because they contain dangerous materials like chromium, cadmium or lead. They may be dangerous because the size of their parts as disassembled may cause injury when swallowed by children.
Parents must follow any pertinent news related to toy safety and may sign up to receive information about product recalls at safekids.org, which provides a comprehensive list of recalls related to products and child-safety received from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Food and Drug Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Recalls never expire so it pays to remain constantly vigilant of unsafe products that may harm your child.
