Don’t Toy With Your Child’s Safety

« Go Back

August 17, 2007 LITTLE ROCK- This week's recall announcement by major toy manufacturer, Mattel Inc., added yet another cause for concern for parents of young children. In the United States, Mattel has recalled 265,000 toy cars due to lead paint concerns and more than 9.3 million toys, such as Polly Pocket and Barbie, with tiny magnets that could be swallowed by children. For parents and caretakers, figuring out which of their children's toys may pose a hazard to their health is a tough task. Accordingly, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel issued this consumer alert to help parents protect their children from defective and potentially dangerous products. I urge all parents to inventory their children's toys immediately
