State Inspectors on the Lookout for Dangerous Toys

December 3rd, 2007 by flanews

State inspectors will be visiting toy stores and other retailers to make sure they are not selling dangerous toys this holiday season.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission currently has about 70 toys on its recall list.  But the federal agency does not have enough people to check stores, so about 15 Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services inspectors will make surprise visits.

“Some of them have small parts and choking is an issue,” said the Agriculture Department’s Terry McElroy.  “In other cases, strangulation is an issue.  There are ropes or levers.  There are other cases where lead was used in the paint.”

To see a list of recalled toys, you can visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website at www.cpsc.gov.
