Parents and family members should be vigilant when shopping for toys this holiday season.
The 37th Annual “Trouble in Toyland” Toy Safety Report says recalled and counterfeit toys are being sold online.
The nonprofit behind the report says it was able to purchase more than 30 recalled toys in October.
Their report also indicates that counterfeit toys that do not necessarily meet mandatory US safety standards continue to be sold in stores and online.
Toys included stuffed animals, action figures, activity balls for infants, musical toys and more.
The toys they could still buy had been recalled for reasons such as choking hazards, potential poisoning hazards, and more.
The majority of them were purchased new in their original packaging or new with tags.
“None of the other sellers have reported, discontinued, or issued a warning regarding any of our other recalled toy purchases,” the report said.
