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.

gifts. Clothing, furniture and many other items have also been recalled this year.

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.
