USCPSC: Toys R US recalls Children’s Sandals

Consumer products are often tested for compliance with federal and state safety standards and regulations. These efforts are taken in the interests of protecting the public and ensuring quality and consistency in the marketplace. Various federal and state agencies release their findings when a product fails their testing or reports are received alerting them to potential safety hazards.
