Choking Hazards

To comply with the federal government's new/revised rule, 16 CFR Part 1500 & Labeling Requirement for Toy and Game Advertisements, Nasco is required to prominently display the appropriate “Choking Hazard” warning for products, whenever necessary.

Any toy or game that requires a cautionary statement about the choking hazard associated with small parts, balloons, small balls, or marbles must bear that cautionary statement in the product’s description.
