Toy Recalls and Toy Safety Concerns Top the Headlines

By

Lately every week brings a new toy recall. Toys with high levels of lead, cadmium and toxic chemicals can be health hazards for children. Toys that break or come apart cause laceration, puncture, choking and fall hazards for kids. Parents must prioritize toy safety and insist on better toy testing and toy companies must learn that parents won't buy their toys if the toys aren't safe.
