When it comes to dangerous consumer products, our children are particularly vulnerable. Each year, children die from injuries associated with toys and nursery products, such as infant carriers and cribs.

To ensure the safety of our children and families, the Illinois Attorney General enforces the Children's Product Safety Act. This law requires manufacturers and retailers to provide notice to consumers when products intended for children have been deemed unsafe. To read more about the Children's Product Safety Act, click here. To read the entire statute, click here.

The public usually becomes aware of dangerous children's products when the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a federal agency, investigates and issues a recall. Unfortunately, by the time a recall is issued, dangerous products are already on store shelves and in consumers' homes.  To protect consumers from these unsafe products, the Illinois Attorney General, pursuant to the Children's Product Safety Act, requires that Illinois retailers remove dangerous products from store shelves and post recall notices in prominent locations.

While these measures help keep dangerous products out of consumers' hands, they are not infallible. For this reason, we strongly encourage parents and caregivers to sign up for e-mail notification of new recalls issued by the CPSC at www.cpsc.gov.  We also encourage you to use the CPSC Web site to check for recalled items you may already have in your home.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact us on our Recall Hotline at 1-888-414-7678.
