With the abundance of candles lit in Jack-O-Lanterns and long draping costumes, burn injuries at Halloween continue to be a concern. Most store-bought childrens constumes will be flame retardent, but home-made costumes may not be. Unfortunately, if you rely on product recalls for protection, safety may come too late. The U.S. Product Safety Commission has issued helpful guidelines for keeping your kids safe this Haloween. See Their site.
