The recent spate of toy recalls is indicative of lax quality control at some manufacturers of products for children. There are many product recalls every month, many of which go underpublicized. Product recalls are published by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and by manufacturers, but these notices may go unseen by most consumers. It falls to parents to be proactive in determining if they have purchased baby products which have been recalled or are defective. A good place to start is www.recalls.gov which lists recent recalls of all consumer products. You can report an unsafe product at www.cpsc.gov and they will investigate.
