Toy recalls are a rare but important to assure safe and fun play.
All toys sold in the U.S, no matter where they are produced, are highly regulated and must conform to tough U.S. safety standards. Recalls are announced to remove faulty products from the distribution chain and, when necessary, out of consumers’ homes.
When a recall is required, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), an independent federal agency, works with a company to identify the product(s) to be recalled, notify the public about the recalled product(s) and issue the appropriate remedy.
Using recall data provided by the CPSC, the Toy Industry Association provides a website so parents and other caregivers can do a quick visual scan of recently recalled toys and games to verify whether any items that require action are found in their home.
