(WJBK) - Toys can get recalled for a variety of reasons, but you may still be able to buy the recalled toy online. When a toy is recalled, parents might not learn about it unless they are diligently checking product safety websites and listservs, or happen to hear news about a recall in the news.
Choking on small parts, small balls and balloons remains a leading cause of toy-related deaths and injuries. Some toys can pose hidden hazards, exposing children to dangerous chemicals that are linked to serious health problems.
Officials with Beaumont Hospital held a news conference Tuesday to share the latest list of recalled toys, and why you may want to stay away from buying these this holiday season. You can find their report at www.toysafetytips.org.
