Latest China recall spurs safety concern
Mattel recalled 1.5 million toys because they contained too much lead. This incident and others like it may lead to reexamining in what manner the toy industry is overseen by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission). The companies in large part have been expected to self report problems to the CPSC, lawmakers, analysts, and consumer groups.

Florida Product Liability Law
In Florida, a product is considered defective when it is unreasonably dangerous to the user or consumer. When this standard is met, the manufacturer and distributor of the product can be held strictly liable for injuries the product causes. This means that the plaintiff need not prove negligent fault. If the product is defective and causes injury, the manufacturer ought to be held responsible for the harm the dangerous product causes. Products manufacturers may also be sued for negligence and breach of warranty.
Our long experience has disclosed that where juvenile products are concerned, parents often have a false sense of security. These products frequently have a harmless, soothing and colorful appearance. This is especially true in the case of toys for babies and toddlers. Yet, these pleasant looking objects can hide grave or life threatening danger to babies and children. Parents and other consumers of dangerous child products are often led to believe that the products must be safe if they are sold in reputable stores. They are also led to believe that if the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or other regulatory agencies haven’t pulled these products from the market, consumers have nothing to fear. Sadly, this is far from true. Scores of dangerous, defective and unsafe infant products, baby products or child products, as well as defective and dangerous toys are sold in major stores every day, throughout the United States.
