Dangerous Toys Kill Kids

According to a report by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 250,000 Team Talkin' Tool Bench toys were recalled by Playskool of Pawtucket, Rhode Island in September (22SEP06). The recall was prompted by the deaths of two children - a 19-month boy-from West Virginia and a two-year-old boy from Texas - who choked on the large plastic nails sold with the tool bench. Stores such as Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Target, and KB had been selling the Playskool toy bench since last October (05). The Consumer Product Safety Commission receives around 20 reports each year related to the deaths of children under three who choked on toys.
