Dollarama Just Recalled Over 50,000 Toys In Canada Over Dangerous Chemical Levels For The Second Time This Year

The product being recalled is the Montoy doll and furniture set, sold between October 16th 2017 and October 5th 2018. The recall was issued after the toys were found to have dangerously high levels of phthalates in them, which could pose a chemical hazard to kids.

Phthalates are a chemical often added to plastics. In small levels, they are pretty harmless, but if there are too many of them they could pose a risk to consumers health.

In the recalled toys, the level of phthalates used was described as one that exceeds the allowable limit." When young people are exposed to dangerously high levels of phthalates, like with these toys, it can cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities. This risk is especially increased when the toys are chewed or sucked on and let's face it, kids put everything in their mouths.
