Putting Your Children At Risk – Garage Sale Purchase Warning
West Palm Beach, FL – Murray & Guari Trial Attorneys want to let consumers know of the hidden dangers at garage sales and second hand stores to help keep you and your family safe.
Each year, hundreds of defective products are recalled (http://www.recalls.gov) by the Federal Government. Unfortunately, a high percentage of recalled products are never returned or repaired. Many consumers have either never heard about a recall or have failed to act on a recall.
With the tough economy and as families try to stretch their dollars, many take advantage of bargain deals at yard sales, thrift stores and second hand stores. What you may not know is that people do unknowingly purchase or sell dangerous and recalled items at garage sales or resale shops.
In a 1999 study conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (www.cpsc.gov/)
Eight (8) Child Products That You Should Never Buy At A Garage Sale
1. Used Child Safety Seats
2. Used or Older Cribs
3. Baby Mattresses
5. Playyards & Playpens
6. Bottle Nipples & Pacifiers
7. Drawstring Clothing
Watch for and be aware of recalled items. If you receive hand-me-downs or buy children’s products at second-hand shops or yard sales, it is very important that you check past product recalls to ensure your child’s safety and to follow recommended steps. For recall information visit: www.recalls.gov. Remember, when in doubt, always throw it out.
With technology and safety advances today, when it comes to our children’s safety it is definitely worth purchasing a new product to reduce your child’s risk of injury or even death.
