Toy Related Injuries Are Up 54% Over Last Decade.

Nevada's Public News Service (12/9) reported according to a report by the American Association for Justice, "95 percent of the toys sold in the US now come from abroad, and some of them would not receive a 'thumbs-up' for safety from Santa." Graham Galloway of the Nevada Justice Association pointed out that once Chinese manufacturers "were taken to task on the lead issue, [they] replaced lead with cadmium - and cadmium is number seven on the Top 10 list of cancer-causing materials." The AAJ report also notes "toy-related injuries have increased 54 percent over the last decade."
