February 2008 Child Product Safety Recalls from Federal Agencies.
As you go down that wish list, make sure you know what toy recalls have been made in 2017.
There’s lots of great ways to enjoy the winter. Sledding, ice skating, and the chance to wear big puffy coats and heavy boots. Of course, there’s also winter weather to consider and so far, we’ve seen it all: cold, wind, snow, and some sunny days too. Now that we’re about halfway through such an unpredictable winter, we thought it might be a good time to give you 5 things to think about when it comes to keeping your family safe.
During our Safe Kids Worldwide leadership conference, I spent the day with several of our international partners, who traveled to Washington, D.C. to share and learn about the best ways to keep kids safe.
We have partner organizations in 27 countries around the world, virtually on every continent except Antarctica. The amazing people who lead these programs have unique and extraordinary experiences about what it takes to keep kids safe. They’re people we want everyone to meet so we decided to interview them on-camera.
Next week (Nov. 5-12) is National Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Awareness Week, an important time to remind all Americans about the dangers of carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is also known as the “silent killer” because it is odorless, tasteless and invisible. But it is quite lethal—and children, infants, pregnant moms and senior citizens are especially vulnerable.
November is a good time for extra awareness because CO deaths are more common when it gets cold and when natural disasters hit—whether it’s a significant snowstorm or a hurricane like Harvey, Irma or Maria.

As a kid growing up in Massachusetts, I remember a lot of cold winters and snowy days. But this is one of the coldest winters I can remember in my adult life. Many parts of the country are enduring record cold winters, and according to our furry groundhog friend, it’s not over yet.

Do you know what you can’t feel, taste, hear or smell but can still be deadly in your home? The answer is carbon monoxide (CO). CO can put our kids, pregnant moms and senior citizens at particular risk.
There’s an easy way to protect your family from the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, also known as the “silent killer.” It’s a carbon monoxide detector. You can purchase one to install in your home or apartment for a very reasonable cost (under $50), a CO detector can even be combined with a smoke alarm.
