Here are just a few of the items on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) list of recalls of children’s items.
You may want to make it a habit to periodically check their website: http://www.cpsc.gov/ to see the latest recalls in case anything you’ve purchased or currently have may be on their list.
It can be exhausting trying to keep up with it, but unfortunately it needs to be done to keep our kids safe from toxic and dangerous toys and other items.

· CPSC Issues New Drawstring Safety Rule for Children's Outerwear; Drawstrings at Neck and Waist Present Strangulation Hazard and Other Dangers
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted (5-0) today to approve a new federal safety rule for drawstrings in children's outerwear. The final rule designates children's upper outerwear in sizes 2T through 12, with neck or hood drawstrings, and children's upper outerwear in sizes 2T through 16, with certain waist or bottom drawstrings, as substantial product hazards. Drawstrings can catch or become entangled with objects, such as a car door or playground slide, posing dragging, strangulation entrapment hazards to children.
