Choking can be deadly. Based on data from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control & Prevention), as many as 2,300+ children choked to death (due to different reasons) from 2001 to 2016 in the US. About 75% of these choking deaths were children under five years old. (1)
Around 305,800 kids also suffered from non-fatal choking injuries. (1)
That’s why it’s important to check your children’s playthings and monitor reports of recalled toys, such as the Janod toy recall issued last May 25, 2023, over potential choking risks. (2)(3)
