As Santa Claus checks his naughty or nice list, you should check your naughty or nice list too. Only your list should check the naughtiness of Christmas toys and whether they appear on a list of recalled products.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission maintains a toy hazard recall list. If you open this list on your browser, you will notice that it's quite long. And you'll also notice some common safety risks that have led to toy recalls.
In fact, some safety risks are so common they warrant some extra attention. Here are three oft-cited areas of concern leading to toy recalls:
The CPSC list of Christmas toy recalls is too long to review with any detail, and includes a wide range of items including toy guns and plush dolls. You'll probably want to do a "control F" search of the list to see if anything you purchased appears. If so, you should return the product or contact the manufacturer for repairs.
And if you or your child have been injured by a recalled toy, consider speaking with a product liability attorney to learn about your rights to collect damages.
