Avoiding the Most Dangerous Products for Children
Every year in the U.S., around 450 products are recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. However, even when products are not recalled, their design or use may pose serious danger for children, especially when used incorrectly. Children’s products should provide harmless entertainment, yet instead children are often exposed to hazards that may result in serious consequences. The concern over whether or not a product is dangerous for their child causes parents and caregivers undue stress; for any product that causes injury, the manufacturer or designer should be held accountable.
Most Dangerous Products
In order to avoid threatening products, it may be in your best interests to make sure your child stay far away from these type of products:
- Metal jewelry
- Painted jewelry
- High chairs
These products are more likely than others to cause injury to children. Children are at much higher risk for swallowing and choking an item, thus leading to serious injuries like intestinal perforation, infection, or even death.

If your child has been exposed to an unsafe product that has been inadequately designed or produced, you should not be liable for your child’s injuries. Children are often unable to determine what is safe and what is not, and it’s up to responsible product producers to properly design products and warn consumers accordingly.
