Illinois State Senate District 49 issued the following announcement on Dec. 10.

State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) urges residents to reference the Illinois Attorney General’s annual safe shopping guide this holiday season.

This year’s guide includes information about more than 30 products deemed safety hazards that range from choking hazards, articles of clothing that do not meet the government’s flammability standard and furniture that can injure children if not assembled correctly.

“The holidays are a special time for us all,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “We want to make sure the children in our lives get everything on their wish list but I urge Will County residents to take a second to reference the shopping guide to ensure gifts are safe for the children who will play with them.”

The list includes certain bath toys, handmade knit dolls, power wheels toys, boots, socks, pajamas and more. The guide, which also features photos of the hazardous products, is meant to help Illinoisans more easily spot the goods, so shoppers do not purchase them or can remove them from homes.
