Halloween Related Product Recalls – Make Sure Your Decor and Costumes Are Safe

If your family is anything like ours, Halloween decorations and other paraphernalia get packed back into boxes or bins and pushed to the depths of the garage within a day or two after the trick-or-treating comes to an end.  The plastic witches and candy-collection pails then stay in their out-of-sight–out-of-mind state until, well, now – the week before the next Halloween night.

Unfortunately, while we all were on to the next holiday, some of those Halloween items many have been recalled without our knowledge.  Therefore, as with anything that has been in storage for a while, it is a good idea to make sure nothing has been recalled for safety reasons before using it again.  To help with this task, I have pasted below pictures of all the Halloween-related products I could find that have been recalled within the last ten years.  If something looks familiar, click on the image to go the corresponding CPSC announcement for more information.

As you view the items below, keep in mind that many costumes and decorations have a long useful life.  Even if the item is new to you, anything you may have purchased in an online marketplace, garage sale or thrift store,  as well as items you received from a friend or family-member, may be several years old.  Do not discount the possibility that you might own an item just because the date makes the recall seem irrelevant.  It is worth a quick peek.   When you are finished, you can read about other Halloween safety tips here.

Happy Halloween!
