Consumer Product Safety Report Trying to Keep Unsafe Toys Off Store Shelves
(KCEN) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Report is trying to keep families safe from dangerous toys this holiday season.
The commission has seized over two million units of potentially dangerous toys and children's products so far.
Since 2008, toys may have gotten safer.
But CPSR is still on guard against potentially unsafe toys.
They're sending agents into toy stores to investigate and inspect imported products carefully.
Concerning one product, Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairman Inez Tenenbaum said, "Well, this is a children's chair and the paint on this chair exceeds the lead limit, which is 90 parts per million, from the federal toy safety standard which is now mandatory."
Compared to 172 toy recalls in 2008, only 38 toys were recalled this year.
