Add recalls to the list of Halloween hazards
By Consumers Union on Friday, October 12th, 2007
From the Consumer Reports Safety Blog: Halloween always prompts a host of safety warnings. You’ve heard many of them before: Make sure costumes can be seen in the dark, be careful when placing candles and, of course, beware of tainted candy. This year, we’re sad to say, we’ve got one more caution to add to the list: Check out your costumes and accessories, candy containers and decorations to make sure they have not been recalled because they contain excessive levels of lead.
