Albany - The Salvation Army has pulled all used toys from its shelves, in fear of problems with recalled items. The Salvation Army thrift Store just reopened in Albany this week, and just this week workers received an order to pull all used toys from the shelves. And it's not just a local order.
All Salvation Army stores in the 13 Southeastern states were given the order. The shelves in part of the store are now empty, but Captain Doug McClure says he'd rather lose business, than lose a child because of a problem toy.
He said, "There's a different recall that comes out everyday and it's virtually impossible to keep up and guarantee the safety of the shoppers in our stores and to guarantee the safety of the kids, especially in the Christmas season that we decided as the Salvation Army not to have toys on our shelves."
Until further notice, you won't see toys on sale at the Salvation Army. Goodwill is also taking extreme measures to make sure recalled toys don't make it to the floor, including tossing away any toys made in China.
