There is no reason for parents to assume that a toy will threaten their child’s safety. Accordingly, they may relax their supervision of their son or daughter’s playtime. But a moment of distraction can be long enough for a toy or product to fall apart in a way that creates a choking danger. The following instances are representative of choking hazards that result from defective design or manufacture:
- Buttons that fall off the product
- Toys or items that are likely to break into small pieces
- Products that contain thin pieces of plastic that may obstruct the windpipe
- Rattles that break apart, allowing their contents to escape
