Missouri group releases report on toy safety

(KMOV) -- Despite the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s efforts to make sure only safe toys are on the market, there are still some toys that an advocacy group in Missouri says still should not be on store shelves.
 
The Missouri Public Interest Research Group has put out its 25th annual "Trouble in Toyland" report in time for the holidays.
 
The group says many of the products they tested are legal but some guidelines aren't strong enough.
 
For example, they say the lead content and that of other toxic materials is too high in many of the toys they tested.
 
The watch-dog group points out significant progress has been made in toy safety in recent years, but there is still a ways to go.
