California Children’s Toys Product Liability Laws
There are laws in place to protect your children from unsafe toys. In 2008, the federal government passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. This act was passed after several toys made by Mattel and Fisher-Price were found to contain lead and other harmful chemicals. The 2008 law requires third-party testing of almost any object meant for children. Companies face stiff penalties for selling toys that violate this rule.
