How do I know whether baby and child products sold at resale stores are safe?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission launched a resale round-up campaign last month to prevent used goods stores from selling recalled products. To kick off the initiative, the commission identified 11 products it considers very dangerous for children. Here’s the list: • Playskool Travel-Lite Play Yards (portable cribs), March 10, 1993 • Baby Trend Home and Roam (portable cribs), Dec. 19, 1994 • Evenflo Happy Camper Play Yards (portable cribs), June 25, 1997 • Baby Express Portable Cribs and Play Yards, Feb. 28, 2001 • Magnetix Magnetic Building Sets, March 31, 2006 • Polly Pocket dolls with magnets, Nov. 21, 2006 • Easy-Bake Ovens, July 19, 2007 • Simplicity Drop Side Cribs, Sept. 21, 2007 • Simplicity Bassinets, Aug. 27, 2008 • Hill Sportswear hooded drawstring sweatshirts, Feb. 12, 2009 • Evenflo Envision high chairs, April 2, 2009 For a complete list of recalled products, visit
