Toy lasers come under scrutiny from FDA | TheHill

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing new safety recommendations to protect children playing with toy laser guns and lightsabers.

“Many a kid who has seen Luke Skywalker battle Darth Vader with a lightsaber thinks lasers are cool,” the FDA writes in a blog post.

“What they may not know is this: When operated unsafely, or without certain controls, the highly-concentrated light from lasers — even those in toys — can be dangerous, causing serious eye injuries and even blindness. And not just to the person using a laser, but to anyone within range of the laser beam,” the agency adds.
