MORE TOYS RECALLED LAST WEEK
The Holiday Season is just around the corner and this past Friday, more potentially harmful toys were recalled and removed from stores. Marvel Toys is recalling hundreds of thousands of Curious George plush dolls. According to the Consumer Protection Agency, paint on the doll's face has high levels of lead. The CPSC is also recalling Chinese-made children's sunglasses, sold at Dollar General Stores from 2005-2007, because they may have yellow paint with high lead levels.
Parents are urged to keep up with all of the various recalls on toys and other products for children. This year alone, there have been nearly 20 million toys and other children related items, taken off shelves and out of stores due to lead, choking hazards or other toxic chemicals. During a time where toy sales will only continue to go up, parents should closely monitor presents and gifts. To find out about recent and past recalls, visit www.recalls.gov
