Toys"R"Us, Inc. Urges Parents and Caregivers to Help Remove Unsafe Items From the Marketplace During Upcoming 'Great Trade-In' Event
Since its Inception, the 'Great Trade-In' Event Has Successfully Removed Approximately 600,000 Products from Homes, Garages and Attics
WAYNE, N.J., Jan. 25, 2012 -- Toys"R"Us, Inc. today issued a new call to action for customers to rid their homes of potentially unsafe old and second-hand baby products and exchange them for savings on a new item during the "Great Trade-In" event. This national safety program, first introduced in August 2009, draws attention to certain used baby products that can carry potential hazards, but are still in circulation, making them poor candidates to be handed down or resold. In fact, according to product safety advocacy organization Kids In Danger, recalled products that have not yet been removed from homes and other facilities have continued to cause harm to infants and children.
