As attorneys and parents of seven children and one more on the way, we are big fans of encouraging healthy eating and playing. We are always looking for safe, entertaining, and educational toys for our children. When a toy is recalled, we are alarmed that children are subjected to such dangers due to the negligence of the manufacturer.
Recently, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and manufacturer The Land of Nod have recalled its “Play with your veggies” play set due to exposed wires in the asparagus toy. The exposed wire can cause a puncture or laceration injury, but none have been reported so far. The play sets were sold between October 2007 and February 2010 both in stores and online.
The recall only affects the asparagus in the set, and The Land of Nod is providing free replacements to consumers if they call (800) 933-9904.
We applaud The Land of Nod for being proactive in this recall, but are disappointed that this product was let onto the market in the first place. Children are faced with enough dangers as they grow up, it is unacceptable for them to bear with threats of injury while playing in their home with their own soft toys.
