Child safety report: Recalls ineffective
Just 10 percent of children's products are returned or fixed during safety recalls, according to a first-of-its-kind report from a children's safety advocacy group. Such a low number of successfully recalled products means many commonly used items that could injure or kill children likely remain in use, according to the new report from Chicago-based Kids in Danger. "The return rate of recalls is really abysmal," said Nancy Cowles, KID's executive director. "The government makes announcements, but people don't hear about them or don't respond."
