Toys are responsible for about 200,000 emergency room visits each year in the United States, the vast majority of which are connected to accidents sustained by children. Concerns regarding safety include the presence of sharp edges, hazardous substances, and choking dangers. In the state of Oregon, Jesse Lawrence-Weilmann works with OSPIRG.
“Families, toy producers, merchants, regulators, and consumer advocates all need to step up their efforts to ensure the safety of our children.”
According to Lawrence-Weilmann, parents should examine the toys their children play with before allowing them to be used. He also urged customers to be on the lookout for counterfeit goods, which do not have to comply with safety requirements in the United States.
