Christmas and Hanukkah presents are supposed to bring joy to kids, but they could also bring death. Florida Public Interest Research Group is warning parents of dangerous toys for sale this holiday season. PIRG tested toys for toxic chemicals, choking and suffocation hazards.
Brad Ashwell a spokesman for the group says many of the toys on the list meet minimal government safety standards,
"even one toy related death is too many and that's why we really need stronger limits on the amount of chemicals that can be placed in toys.
PIRG released its 25th annual Trouble in Toyland report today. This year there's a website accessible on smart phones to help parent to read the report as they shop.
