Holiday Safety Round-up

Atlanta, GA (SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) today began a holiday toy safety round-up to get hazardous toys out of people's homes before the holidays. Despite recall notices and public warnings, CPSC has found that many products with the potential to seriously injure or kill are still being used by consumers.

"We can get recalled toys off store shelves," said CPSC Chairman Ann Brown, "but the more difficult task is to get recalled toys out of people's homes."

In an effort to help keep these potentially hazards toys out of the hands of children, SafetyAlerts has provided a list of toys recalled during 1999.

26 Toys have been recalled this year for safety reasons.

Toys are not the only things given to children as gifts.  Clothing, furniture and many other items have also been recalled this year.   SafetyAlerts has compiled a listing of the 34 'other' child related items recalled during 1999.

Consumers should also check chrismas lights and other seasonal items to be sure they have not made the safety recall list.  There have been 20 different Christmas items recalled over the last 10 years for safety reasons.  Since many people keep and use these items for many years, SafetyAlerts has compiled a list of these recalls.
