USPS to destroy “Just Move” stamps over safety concerns



Linn’s Stamp News reports that the US Postal Service will destroy the entire press run of a stamp series aimed at getting children to be more active. According to Linn’s reporter Bill McAllister, three of the stamps in the fifteen stamp series raised safety concerns among sports figures on the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. The stamps in question depicted children performing a cannonball dive, skateboarding without kneepads, and doing a headstand without a helmet. The unsafe depictions came to light after USPS Marketing chief Nagisa Manabe asked Michelle Obama to take part in a first day ceremony for the stamps. That was apparently the first time the stamps had been reviewed by the Sports Council.

If you get your safety advice from a stamp, that's a problem.

26. You do know "Hot Coffee Lottery"

is a myth don't you. I saw the images of that older woman's wounds from that "hot coffee". She was burned extremely badly in her crotch and backside requiring skin grafts. She was put into a nursing home after and never returned home and died a couple years later. And for what its worth they were not in a moving car...her nephew pulled into a parking spot before this happened.

Using the "Hot Coffee Lottery" is disrespectful to what that little old lady suffered at the hands of McDonalds.

The woman was disfigured and badly harmed and hadn't done anything particularly stupid. Mcdonalds had been warned many times about the heat of their coffee but kept it at high temperatures for commercial reasons.

You should look into things yourself before you direct other people to.

she died before the case went to court. Her nephew that cared for her sued on her behalf. Again...I saw the images that were presented as evidence...it was horrific. She suffered and was never the same again.

There is a picture at this link....warning very graphic!

40. Well I remember reading that she never left the nursing home...

I misremembered that part...but Stella was hardly frivolous about her lawsuit and she hardly deserves the kind of scorn she became with jokes about how this woman was litigious (ie McDonald's Coffee Lottery)

"...Liebeck was taken to the hospital, where it was determined that she had suffered third-degree burns on six percent of her skin and lesser burns over sixteen percent. She remained in the hospital for eight days while she underwent skin grafting. During this period, Liebeck lost 20 pounds (9 kg, nearly 20% of her body weight), reducing her down to 83 pounds (38 kg). Two years of medical treatment followed.

Pre-trial
Liebeck sought to settle with McDonald's for $20,000 to cover her actual and anticipated expenses. Her past medical expenses were $10,500; her anticipated future medical expenses were approximately $2,500; and her loss of income was approximately $5,000 for a total of approximately $18,000. Instead, the company offered only $800. When McDonald's refused to raise its offer, Liebeck retained Texas attorney Reed Morgan. Morgan filed suit in New Mexico District Court accusing McDonald's of "gross negligence" for selling coffee that was "unreasonably dangerous" and "defectively manufactured". McDonald's refused Morgan's offer to settle for $90,000. Morgan offered to settle for $300,000, and a mediator suggested $225,000 just before trial, but McDonald's refused these final pre-trial attempts to settle."

Just gets to me when I hear people make light of that case when poor Stella suffered so much...And I know its because people don't really know what went on with that case. The reason is because McDonald's tried to use a misinformation campaign against her. So I thought it was a good opportunity to educate people and disabuse them of that notion. Thank you for the opportunity to provide more information and thank you for being a good sport about it.

Consider the Lesson learned them. I was one of the lambs that bought into the misinformation campaign. Because of your posts I did go back and look based on what you posted to look at. WOW! those pictures are horrific. I was one of the ones that thought McDonalds coffee was too hot to begin with and is still too hot. But I also thought the lawsuit was silly based on the info that was spoonfed by McDonalds with an all beef patty. I am informed and ashamed. Thank you

Wearing a helmet during a headstand would make it more dangerous.. Harder to balance, more risk of neck injury, etc.

53. That's not what I meant

I think that IN GENERAL, there are differences between little boys and little girls, and that playing rough games is important for many little boys in a way that I, as a woman, can't really understand.

I don't believe that little boys and little girls should be raised differently, but I don't think that there should be enforced sameness either.

Of course if little girls want to play football and little boys want to make Barbie clothes, they should be encouraged in that.

Obviously there are cultural assumptions that we throw at kids that are nonsense, but it shouldn't be up to women to define what masculinity is any more than it should be up to men to define what being a woman should be about. Letting women make the definitions and set the rules runs the risk of pathologizing normal "boy" behavior.

Finally, I am concerned that kids in general have been playing outside for millennia, and that by going against it and keeping kids indoors for fear that they will get hurt is really unhealthy and we will see problems in the future from this.

62. Let me ask you a question, and it may sound confrontational but ... really, not intended that way.

...are you a parent? Are you someone who spends a lot of time around little kids, through work or whatever?

The reason I ask is because there is a lot of "common knowledge" assumption around "kids today" and what they do or don't do or helicopter parents or what-have-you. I am a parent. I do not believe there is anything like an epidemic of "keeping kids indoors for fear that they will get hurt".

11. It kind of fits

The reason the First Lady was interested this is because of high rates of childhood obesity, which is caused in part because parents are afraid to send their kids outside playing due to fear of injury and kidnapping. Kids who play sometimes get hurt, but, as a parent, I've had other parents amazed that I allow my kids to: jump on a trampoline, climb trees, run on the sidewalk (they could trip and fall or stub a toe), play tag (they could collide), climb up the slide, and get in snowball fights. It's safer to have kids inside in front of a TV screen all the time. So we have education campaigns such as these stamps.

12. From a far future history text:

in the mid to late 20th century, the human race was on the verge of extinction. more than half of children were killed in playtime accidents.

It wasn't until the United States Postal Service, recognizing this fact and their opportunity to change this, recalled their stamps indicating dangerous playtime. This single action was the seminal event that altered the downward spiral of human population and led to a new Golden Age of human enlightenment and prosperity.

27. I think kids are more likely

to ask what a postage stamp is than to get any dangerous ideas from them

50. Physical activity while your underwear is twisted can lead to injury.

Better have an informational campaign about that.

This is a report of a report. I'd like to view the original story and see the source of this news but Linn's is a paid subscription site: http://linns.com/

79. Simply Ridiculous

Tell the the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition and Michelle Obama to stay out of it! I think the Post Office destroying these stamps because of them is ridiculous. So what if the skateboarder doesn't have kneepads ON A STAMP or a kid is doing a cannonball or a kid is doing a headstand without a helmet (how do you do one WITH a helmet anyway???). At least the Post Office is advocating kids to get moving instead of sitting there playing video games. egad! Oh my, what if the kids got a paper cut on their tongues licking the stamps, how safe is that? (actually they are peel and stick I'm assuming)

Maybe the Post Office should do a time lapse photograph stamp of 20 of a bunch of kids bubble wrapped and see how long it takes them to get out of it. I bet that would get them "moving" I am just kidding. No hate mail please.
