Safety Regulators Issue Safety Alert For Still-Popular Fidget Spinners

CPSC issues safety alert about fidget spinners

But after some unsafe incidents involving the popular gizmos, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued new fidget spinner safety guidance for consumers and businesses.

As we've previously reported, fidget spinners have evolved from their modest designs with mechanical parts to include internal batteries that power bluetooth speakers, lights, and other features.

Children's products must be tested in a laboratory to make sure they're under the limit for lead and other unsafe substances, they must be labelled with information about their manufacture, and the maker must provide sellers with a certificate assuring the toys have been made according to the rules.

These batteries, like those used in hoverboards, can be charged - although it's unclear if the batteries are lithium-ion. According to the statement, fidget spinners may pose a risk of both explosions and choking in young children.

Prudential Financial Inc. Sells 853026 Shares of Frontier Communications Corporation (FTR)
Buckingham Research initiated Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD) on Tuesday, December 15 with "Neutral" rating. UBS AG reiterated a "buy" rating on shares of Frontier Communications Corporation in a research report on Thursday, May 4th.

Never charge a product with batteries overnight while you are sleeping.

If the fidget spinner did not come with a cable, make sure to use one with the correct connections for charging.

Read the full statement from CPSC Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle on fidget spinner safety.

As a result, the agency simply recommends keeping the products away from children under three years of age.

Ladbrokes Coral Group PLC (LCL) Given Consensus Recommendation of "Buy" by Analysts

Buried in the warning though, was a more specific warning that there were "some reports of fires involving battery-operated fidget spinners".

Warn children of all ages not to put fidget spinners or small pieces in their mouths and not to play with the fidget spinner near their faces.

A fidget spinner, of course, is the simple toy you've probably spotted kids playing with at some point.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a fidget spinner safety guidance to help consumers understand the ways in which the product can be harmful.
