As Thanksgiving approaches, dedicated shoppers know that Black Friday, arguably the best shopping day of the year, is not far behind. Many Americans get all of their holiday shopping done in that single day, if they are willing to get up early and are able to continue to shop all day. As parents begin to fulfill their children's holiday wishes, officials advise that they keep toy safety in mind in order to avoid injuries caused by defective products. Luckily, keeping children safe from harmful or dangerous toys does not require much more than simple common sense.
Another day, another recall of a children's product.
In the second infant-product recall in as many months, Graco Children's Products Inc. has announced a defective product recall of two million baby strollers after causing the deaths of four young children. Prior to the recall, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) received reports of five additional infants becoming entrapped in the strollers, with resulting cuts, bruises, and difficulty breathing.
