CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois parents have a guide to turn to for safe shopping advice as the holiday season approaches.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan released her office's annual Safe Shopping Guide on Monday. It details recalled products to warn parents about potentially dangerous toys and household items. Items in the guide were recalled over the last year. They include toys covered with lead paint, dolls with choking hazards and defective high chairs and strollers.

This year's guide includes a new section on food safety for those diagnosed with food allergies and to call attention to food recalls.

The guide is available on the attorney general's website or via mail by contacting the Attorney General's Recall Hotline, 1-888-414-7678.
