MASSPIRG releases 28th annual list of dangerous toys


The Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group (MASSPIRG) revealed their annual list of dangerous toys that are currently on store shelves.

The group says that even after improvements some toys on store shelves still pose hazards to children, including toys that contain lead and other harmful materials.

MASSPIRG reps visited Square One in Springfield Tuesday to talk about the report and help consumers shop safely.

"It's a variety of hazards including toxins but also many choking hazards. It was just across the board a lot of recalls," said Charlotte Graham, a MASSPIRG advocate.

The list includes toddler toys with 29 times the legal limit of lead, and play jewelry for children with two times the legal limit.
