It seems like there is another toy being recalled every day. Last week, Aqua Dots, Curious George, Wendy Bellissimo cribs, Dollar Store children's sunglasses, and Fisher Price medical kits were just some of the items recalled.
How are these products making it to the shelves in the first place? Wouldn't it make sense to test products before they go on sale?
BabyCenter has implemented their own process for recalled toys and is taking the following actions:
- Notifying people who have purchased a recalled product within 24 hours of its recall.
- Testing all products sold on the site.
- Displaying the origin of select toys and products.
- Posting unedited product reviews.
To keep abreast of recalls, you can subscribe to an email alert from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
