Protect Your Child

Many parents believe that buying a popular brand name product, using a hand-me-down product that has already been "kid-tested,” or buying an expensive product means that it will be safe.

However, these beliefs do not mean a product is safe. Regardless of how popular, new, or expensive your product is, it might still be unsafe for your child.

Since the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008, there is now mandatory safety testing for children’s products and toys. However, in 2012, there were a reported 77,900 emergency room treated injuries in children under 5 years old due to nursery products. Although the CPSIA has made progress towards product safety, there is still room for improvement.  Older products, even those that have been recalled remain in use and not all products have to meet mandatory standards.

3 Steps to Safety

Making an effort to protect children from dangerous products is as basic as 1, 2, 3. Do your best to protect your child by taking these three steps:
