Poison Pods: Lock Them Up

If you have young children, be sure to keep both your dishwasher pods and your laundry detergent pods safely locked away. Consumer advocate Erin Brockovich recently cautioned via Facebook that roughly one child per hour suffers poisoning from eating laundry detergent pods (Erin's information comes from a study published by the American Academy of Pediatrics).

Defective kids' products: Grumpy Cat toys pose choking risk

One of the most common defects among children's toys is that they pose a choking hazard. As parents know, young children can put foreign objects in their mouths in the blink of an eye, and toy manufacturers and retailers are legally obliged to follow regulations meant to prevent dangerous toys from getting into the hands of children.

Infant socks recalled because of choking hazard

A recent recall from the company Classic Characters has California parents on edge this month. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the company's line of infant socks that look like frogs are being recalled after it was discovered that the knit face of the frog on the front of the sock could become detached, which poses a choking hazard to infants and young children.

Voluntary recall of BabyHome highchairs for safety risk

In coordination with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, BabyHome USA Inc. has decided to participate in a voluntary recall of nearly 1,100 of its Eat High Chair models because of a potential safety hazard. The company posted information about the recall on their website after the safety hazard was brought to their attention late last month.

Too close for comfort: The dangers of real guns looking like toys

There is no doubting that the topic of gun safety is at an all time high in our country right now. With multiple shootings occurring across the nation and hundreds of serious injuries happening as a result of children accidently getting their hands on unsecured weapons, it's no wonder Congress has made it its mission this session to help put a stop to the tragedies.

Single-use laundry packs still posing a threat to children

In a September blog post we talked about the health risk that laundry and dish soap packs posed to children. Because of their bright colors, many children across the nation, including here in California, were mistaking them for candy. When accidentally ingested, the children became incredibly ill and many medical experts warned that if a large enough amount was unintentionally ingested, it could put a child at risk of death as well.

All I want for Christmas is some safer toys...

Who can forget that famous scene in 'A Christmas Story' when Ralphie asks the Santa at the mall for an Official Red Rider Air-Rifle, to which the Santa replies, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid." It's a Christmas classic that brings us back to a time when toys had few safety warnings and often times really could take children's eyes out.

Inflatable play structures responsible for increase in child injuries

If you've driven past a neighborhood where there has been a children's birthday party, chances are you've seen one of those large, inflatable play structures such as a bouncy house or an inflatable slide.

"Mommy, I don't feel good..."

Parents in California and around the world know how wonderful-and nerve wracking-it can be having kids. Most of the time we pay little mind to the fact that they won't eat the small bit of broccoli on their plate or the fact that they just flushed daddy's car keys down the toilet for the second time this month.
