Michigan’s Most Dangerous Toys: Christmas 2020
Attorney General Dana Nessel has just released the 2020 dangerous toys guide. Do not give these 10 gifts this Christmas.
Toys are meant to be fun, not dangerous. That statement sounds rather obvious, but every three minutes a child is treated in a U.S. emergency room for a toy-related injury, and last year, 12 children died. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have jointly issued the 2020 Dangerous Toy Guide.
Parents must exercise caution when purchasing toys for children this year as some of the traditional safety protocols that we’ve become accustomed to may have been compromised due to COVID-19. My office is committed to protecting consumers from a variety of concerns, and I urge anyone who’s shopping for toys to do their research and review the guides and tips on how to safely make purchases. There is a lot of information to help consumers this holiday season, including my office’s 2020 Dangerous Toy Guide.
