Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is giving a helping hand to parents during this Christmas shopping season.
Her office has released its annual Safe Shopping Guide .
In it parents can find details about recalled products and toys and household items that could pose a danger to children.
New to the guide this year is a section on food safety for people who have food allergies.
The guide is available on the Attorney General's website or by mail by calling the Attorney General's Recall Hotline at 1-888-414-7678.
