Why Was 2007 Considered The Year Of The Recall?

Non-profit organizations Consumer Reports and Kids In Danger called 2007 the “year of the recall” because 448 recalls were issued for this year alone. (3)

Of these recalls, about 52% or 231 involved children’s products, with 100+ being toy recalls. (3)

What’s alarming is that despite the laws governing toy manufacturing standards and warnings to parents, toy-related deaths and injuries continue to happen each year. (4)
