Official Title

To amend the Federal Hazardous Substances Act to require the inclusion of warning labels on Internet and catalogue advertising of certain toys and games.


Choking Hazard Awareness Act - Amends the Federal Hazardous Substances Act to require: (1) any advertisement for any toy, game, balloon, small ball, or marble that requires a cautionary "choking hazard" statement to display such statement in its entirety on or immediately adjacent to such advertisement; and (2) the statement to be displayed in the language that is primarily used in the advertisement, catalogue, or website and in conspicuous and legible type. Treats such requirements as consumer product safety standards, and the publication or distribution of any advertisement that is not in compliance with such requirements as a prohibited act, under the Consumer Product Safety Act.
