Holiday Safety Shopping Guide Released
One of the biggest holiday shopping days of the year is only a few days away, and whether you are buying a gift or receiving one, you want to make sure it doesn't potentially pose a danger to children.
From toys covered in lead paint to defective high chairs and strollers, the annual Holiday Safe Shopping Guide was released today to warn parents about potentially dangerous toys and household items.
"We actually put in pictures of every one of the toys along with the description so that you can use this guide to see if any of those items are in your home or any of those items are at your school or any of those items you are invertantly intending to purchase," Attorney General Lisa Madigan said.
In 2007, more than 44 million children's products were recalled. The main issue they are still battling today are high powered magnets, which can lead to chocking and possibly even death to young children.
