CPSC Makes List & Says Check It Twice for Recalled Toys & Kids Products

Washington, D.C. - Consumers are often advised to shop early for the holidays, even months ahead, to save time and money. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is alerting consumers that they may have bought children's items that have since been recalled. Hal Stratton, in his first news conference as CPSC Chairman, announced a list of some of the Commission's largest recalls of children's products over the past year.

"We've made our list and want consumers to check it twice," said Stratton. "Preventing needless tragedies and providing a safe environment are the best holiday gifts parents can provide their children."

Stratton also discussed hazardous products that consumers may have in their homes that could endanger children, as families gather for the holidays. Consumers should check whether products have been recalled and dispose of them or place them out of the reach of children until they can be replaced or repaired. Manufacturers will usually offer a free repair kit or replacement product.
