Every year, thousands of children in the United States are injured and
disabled by products that shouldn’t have been allowed on store shelves.
To help keep your child safe, check out the product safety recalls on the
Consumer Product Safety Commission’s
website. Below we’ve listed some of the most recent recalls on products that
might be in your home.
- Natart Chelsea Dressers. If a small child climbs onto the dresser they
can cause the dresser to become unbalanced and tip over. Recently, a two
year old boy suffocated after becoming entrapped under the dresser. The
dressers were sold at Furniture Kidz and other independent juvenile specialty
stores and at Baby.com.
- Target’s Two-Piece and Girls’ Pajamas. Two sets of children’s
pajamas sold at Target have failed to meet federal flammability standards
and pose a burn risk for children. No injuries have been reported so far,
but consumers with the pajamas can take them back to Target for a full refund.
- Bugaboo Cameleon and Donkey Model Strollers. Both Bugaboo stroller models
have carrier handles that can become unattached and pose fall and choking
hazards to young children. Bugaboo has received 58 reports of handles
becoming unattached, but so far no injuries have been recorded. The product
was sold at a number of nationwide retailers including Neiman Marcus,
Nordstrom and Toys R Us.
- Fisher-Price’s Newborn Rock ’n Play Sleeper. When left damp
or not cleaned frequently, the sleeper can develop mold and poses an infection
risk for infants. Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold on the
sleeper and sixteen infants have been treated for respiratory problems
after using the sleeper. Consumers should check for mold immediately and
stop using the product if any is found.
If you or your child has been injured by a defective product, you may be
entitled to compensation.
