Thinking about toy safety

Nice post  here on holiday toy safety. It’s a timely reminder for parents and grandparents who might be out shopping for kids’ gifts. There are those who grumble about toy safety initiatives and safety regulations.  The reality is that those who complain haven’t faced the horror of a profoundly injured child.   Nothing compares to that type of tragedy. No family should have to go through anything like it.

That’s meant as kudos for There aren’t enough independent voices out there protecting consumers.  That’s why I am a supporter.

New information resource for Oregon consumers

Kind of excited to see that the Oregon Consumer web page has gotten its sea legs and is publishing.  Here is the link for some interesting information on a wide range of consumer issues. I’ll be monitoring and noting some of their published reports. My hope is that the web page realizes its potential,  as we consumer advocates need all the help we can get.
