CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois parents have a guide to turn to for
safe shopping advice as the holiday season approaches.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan released her office's annual Safe
Shopping Guide on Monday. It details recalled products to warn parents about
potentially dangerous toys and household items. Items in the guide were
recalled over the last year. They include toys covered with lead paint, dolls
with choking hazards and defective high chairs and strollers.
This year's guide includes a new section on food safety for those
diagnosed with food allergies and to call attention to food recalls.
The guide is available on the attorney general's website or via mail by
contacting the Attorney General's Recall Hotline, 1-888-414-7678.
