Toys Made in China Continue to Pose Threat, Even in Georgia

I am not at all surprised to see that the fallout from the discovery that many Chinese manufactured toys are hazardous to children’s health continues. I am sure many of these hazardous toys have made their way to Georgia and Atlanta. Every day now it seems as if we learn of new toys from China that should not be bought for children because they pose a health threat to the children who would play with them. The latest such dangerous toys: sets of Essentials for Kids jewelry, 800 Mag Stix magnetic building sets and 68,000 Shape Sorting Toy Castles. These toys have now all been recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. You can find a list of recalled toys by going to http://www.cpsc.gov.
I think it is probably a good idea to check on the USCPS’s list of recalled toys periodically, especially before buying for a birthday or Christmas. My friend and fellow Georgia Trial Lawyer, Don Keenan, also makes a point of including a list of dangerous toys on the Keenan Kids Foundation website, http://www.keenanskidsfoundation.com. Some of these toys were even manufactured right here in the United States. It is senseless that the practice of allowing foreign manufactured toys that can kill children continues. It is only a matter of time before one of these hazardous toys kills a precious child right here in Georgia.
