UltimateMama wants you to know that Charlotte, N.C.-based Family Dollar Stores Inc. announced a voluntary recall of 1.8 million toy dart gun sets because of an aspiration hazard after two children died.

Plainfield, N.J.-based Henry Gordy International Inc., which imports the toy dart gun sets, refused to recall the toy sets. 

For more information check out the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

Many of my loyal readers thanked me for encouraging them to visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's website on a frequent basis and for alerting them to the November 2009 Maclaren USA stroller recall following fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child. 

Do not mess around when it comes to your child's safety!

UltimateMama knows that with the holiday season comes lots of gifts — some loved and many hated.  The most important thing as a parent is that your child's presents are safe.
