Number of toy recalls

How many toy recalls are there?

Over 100 per year

It is interesting to know that toys are recalled more than twice a week.  This signifies that there are on average over 100 toys recalls per year.  What does recall signify?  A recall is when the government and the manufacturer decide to remove a product from the market because it is dangerous and poses a risk of serious harm.  The main idea is that when a toy is recalled, manufacturers typically only retrieve 10 to 30 percent of the units. Unfortunately, this means that millions of dangerous recalled toys are still on the market.
