Choking Related Recalls on the Rise?

Is it me or are there more chocking risk related recalls then ever before? The manufacturer of Falls Creek infant shoes has issued a recall of about 2,300 infant shoes due to a potential choking hazard. Apparently, the shoe laces may detach from the shoes, causing a chocking hazzard.

Granted, there are lots of thinks that infants and small children can choke on. Keep an eye out balloons, gum balls, coins, marbles, hot dogs and other chocking risk type foods, batteries, marker caps, and anything else that you can imagine your child chocking on if swallowed or lodged in his/her mouth.
