Attorney General Jack Conway is urging Kentucky consumers to consider toy safety information when making purchases for children this holiday season.  “Keeping our kids safe is one of my top priorities,” General Conway said. “Being aware of the latest product safety measures and recall information can prevent potential injuries and possibly save lives.”

 

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC), there were an estimated 265,000 toy-related injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms in 2012. Of those injured, more than 70 percent were children younger than 15 years of age.

 

Conway urges consumers to follow recommended age ranges on toy packages and read instructions before allowing your child to play with a toy.  Be aware of any choke hazard a toy may pose and make sure gift bags and wrapping paper are picked up to prevent suffocation hazards.

A guide to the latest toy and product recall information is available at ag.ky.gov and the CPSC’s website at www.cpsc.gov.
