'Trouble in Toyland' report lists unsafe gifts
« on: November 23, 2011, 02:57:13 AM »
Every year, the Trouble in Toyland report by the U.S. Public Interest Group lists potentially dangerous items parents may want to avoid during Christmas shopping. For instance, items made outside the U.S. may contain lead-based paints.

From the article:
Quote
"Sadly we're seeing recurring problems, and what we would argue is that we know what the problems are, and we actually need to fix the problems ... Toy manufacturers need to be more vigilant about the products they put out," said Gary Kalman, the director of U.S. PIRG's federal legislative office.

This article is two years old, but nothing has changed. Kids choke on broccoli, too (no offence to your avatar, biro!  :)).
