Question: Do you know what are the most likely places that your child could get burned?

Answer:Burn or scald risks exist in places you might not expect. Typically we worry about a child touching a hot stove. But children's products have posed burn risks in a variety of ways:

  • Clothing may not meet federal flammability standards
  • The product could ignite
  • The product could overheat and melt
  • Battery failure could lead to overheating


Additionally, children have been hurt by tap water that is too hot and by pulling hot liquids off stoves, out of microwaves, or off counters. This fall, KID's TEST program participants created new designs that would prevent these injuries.


Kids In Danger (KID) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting children by improving children’s product safety.

You can regularly consult the following site for up to date information on hazardous products for your child, product recalls, programs, etc., and stay informed on issues related to child safety.


How do you think we can enhance our children's safety and limit the risk from product injury?
