Second Hand Safety: Check the Facts Before You Buy
If you think you’re getting a good deal buying toys and other children’s items second hand, you may want to reconsider.
Just one example is this early model of the "Bumbo" seat for babies.
It was recalled because children were seriously injured or killed after falling out.
This is just one of thousands of dangerous, even deadly kid products sold second hand after they were recalled.
Most online sites already have policies in place that block people from selling recalled items, but some slip through the cracks.
You can check to see if an item is under recall by going to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.
