WASHINGTON, D.C. - As Halloween approaches, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is providing tips to prevent injuries to trick- or-treaters. Among the dangers are costumes that are not flame resistant and masks that obscure vision. These tips are available in the following formats: as a brochure (pdf); as text only; as a brochure in Spanish (pdf); and as text only in Spanish.

"For those consumers whose children celebrate Halloween, we hope they will use CPSC's safety tips to help protect little trick-or- treaters from being haunted by preventable injuries," said CPSC Chairman Hal Stratton.

For the first time, CPSC has partnered with Dunkin' Donuts to launch the national "Mind Your Munchkins Halloween Safety Program," which is designed to inform parents and kids on the importance of Halloween safety. A video news release will be broadcast at 10 a.m. today. The coordinates are listed at the end of this press release.

Consumers can make this year's holiday a safe one by following these safety tips on costumes, treats and decorations.
