California Public Watchdog Group Releases Annual Dangerous Toys List by Lori Abbott Californians heading to the shopping malls in the coming weeks wilt want: to know if the toys they're buying are safe. The .California Public Interest Research Group's (CALPIRG) 24th annual "Trouble in Toyland" report may help consumers identify potentially hazardous products. CALPIRG's Mike Russo says dangerous toys are still being sold, but they have also seen some progress in toy safety, thanks to a new law overhauling the Consumer Product Safety Commission. "There's new limits on lead and other toxic chemicals, new pre- market testing and certification process that'll help to weed out a lot of these problems before they actually wind up on store shelves. But with that said, there are certainly still products that are slipping through the cracks." The report focused on three hazards: small parts that may cause choking; loud toys that can cause hearing damage; and toys containing lead or phthalates. Russo says CALPIRG has added an interactive tool this year to help shoppers access their toy safety information using a "smart phone" or computer, even while standing in the store. "(They) can actually look up a toy just on their phone on a special site that's designed for them so they easily look up the different hazards that are out there, get tips and look through our database of potentially unsafe toys." He says consumers can also use the interactive Web site to report a toy they believe might be dangerous, and researchers will investigate. While most toys on store shelves are safe, we continue to find toys that pose a range of safety hazards to small children. As a result, parents and other child-care providers need to remain vigilant in order to prevent $495,000 Here's the Fixer Cabin Everybody Wants.

Recently, U.S. PIRG (the national orginization) broadened the scope of unsafe toys to include toys labeled as phthalate- free. Our analysis last year shows that even some products labeled phthalate-free contain the dangerous chemical. Toy manufacturers should act swiftly to recall unsafe products and give parents the information they need to allow them to purchase safe toys for their children. U.S. PIRG and our allies have prompted recalls or regulatory action on over 100 toys. The current list includes not just toys, infant and childrens apparell and sleep wear, car seats, strollers and the recently 2127 Main Street (Next to Town Hall) Dennis Freiden Jane Brown-Darch~ eropem, are "O['f the #,rim~ [No $ff, Sf). r~re is ul, p~one ~,doreround to each ~r.L ~oe~e have water ~eters, ~orae need wells.

Here are a few tips to help: Package shipments prop- erly to minimize the weight and cost of shipping. Use the smallest box possible to save resources and money. * Reuse packing materials. Use shredded paper, packing peanuts, Bubble Wrap and used wrapping paper to pack your shipments. The less your package weighs, the fewer resources will be used and you'll save money. Purchase boxes made from recycled materials. Most FedEx envelopes, for example, are made from 100 percent recycled content. All their boxes are recyclab]e. Save a truck stop. While running errands, drop off your express shipments at one of more than 50,000 drop-off locations. Ground packages can be dropped at more than 1,800 FedEx Office locations nationwide. Knowing important deadlines will help ensure cost-effective gift, delivery. As the more cost-effective option, ship with Ground and Home Delivery services before Dec. 17 in time for Christmas. For last-minute gift givers, the final day to ship with FedEx Express is Dec. 23.
