The Illinois Attorney General’s Toy, Crib, and Product Recall Guide

Attorney General Lisa Madigan has released her newest recalled products guide as part of her ongoing effort to protect children by educating families on the dangers of having recalled toys, cribs, and other potentially dangerous items in their homes.
