Use Caution When Buying Toys

One of the speakers at the recent Maryland Public Interest Research Group press conference on toys at Sinai Hospital was U.S. Rep John Sarbanes, a father of three who spoke about the need for increased awareness. The 2009 "Trouble in Toyland" from the U.S. PIRG states that in 2007, there were 45 million toys and other children’s products recalled in 2007.

"We have to make sure the products that are sold are going to be safe," Sarbanes said. "You find often after the fact that toys you thought were safe are not."
