With the holiday season just around the corner, many people have begun their Christmas and Hanukkah toy shopping. Stores are already laden with an extravaganza of toys, which can make choosing difficult. When it comes to making choices, parents need to be aware of dangerous children’s toys that could be unsafe because of lead contamination.Many recalls on dangerous children’s toys involve strangulation and choking hazards. Yet another danger that can be linked to unsafe toys is lead contamination. With many products coming from foreign countries that still use lead, such as China, there is the potential risk for your child to be exposed to unhealthy levels of lead. This exposure could result in lead poisoning, which can have long-term, lasting effects. While consumers may do their part to be aware of unsafe products by checking with agencies such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the reality is that dangerous children’s toys are still out there. If your child was diagnosed with lead poisoning because of a toy with lead contamination, you may be eligible to file an Illinois product liability claim.
