>> ERIC CURRY: HE OR SHE ASKS, WHAT TOYS ARE PRONE TO HAVE LEAD OF MIGHT HAVE OTHER TOXIC SUBSTANCES? HOW CAN PEOPLE SELECT SAFER TOYS? TWO GREAT QUESTIONS >> KELLY RANSDELL: THEY ARE AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION HAS REALLY BEEFED UP THEIR ENFORCEMENT AT OUR PORTS AND THAT IS A WONDERFUL THING THEY ARE SEEING LESS CASES OF LEAD PAINT RECALLS ON TOYS THAN ANY OTHER YEAR

THEY ACTUALLY ANY TOY THAT IS PAINTED CAN BE A HAZARD YOU WANT TO LOOK AT THAT THEY DO HAVE STRICT STANDARDS THEY HAVE UPPED THE STANDARDS SO THAT THEY ALLOW LESS LEVELS OF LEAD WITHIN THE TOYS AND WE HAVE SEEN A SIGNIFICANT DECREASE BECAUSE OF THE PORT ENFORCEMENT

ONE THING TO LOOK FOR, MOST OF YOUR RETAILERS THAT ARE OUT THERE, MAINSTREAM RETAILERS, WILL HAVE TOYS THAT MEET THESE STANDARDS AND HAVE BEEN INSPECTED AND THE MANUFACTURERS HAVE CERTIFIED THEY DON'T HAVE THE LEAD PAINT IN THEM WHEN YOU RUN INTO A PROBLEM, IS WITH THE ECONOMY BEING THE WAY IT IS, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO THRIFT STORES AND USING SECOND-HAND TOYS AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THEY ARE CERTAINLY OKAY IN SOME CASES, BUT IF YOU DECIDE TO DO THAT, MAKE SURE YOU GO TO THE CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION SITE AND CHECK TO SEE IF THERE HAS BEEN A RECALL CAUSE WHAT WE FIND A LOT OF TIMES THE SECOND-HAND TOYS, THE RETAILER SELLING THEM MAY NOT KNOW THE PAWN SHOP OR WHATEVER HAVE BEEN RECALLED AND MAY NOT BE AS DILIGENT AS A RETAILER IN MAKING SURE THEY CHECK THEM SO YOU CAN PROTECT YOURSELF BY GOING ONLINE TO CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY CPSC

GOV AND ACTUALLY LOOKING AT THE NAME AND MODEL OF THE TOY AND SEEING IF THERE HAS BEEN A RECALL ON IT
