Second Chance Toys is mindful of the toy hazard recall which was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, affecting about 9.5 million toys in the United States.

While there are a large number of toys, which in recent months have come under scrutiny worldwide for containing dangerously high levels of chemicals and toxins, at Second Chance Toys we continue to review the rescued toys against published lists from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission to ensure any toys in question are excluded from our toy donations. You can also use this Toy Recalls Database page as another helpful reference tool for toys made from as early as 1974 to today.
