If you are a parent, it’s scary to think that some of your children’s
toys or clothing might cause them injury or even lead to death because
of a negligent company. To help keep your family safe, here are some of
the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s children’s products
recalls from September:
Monster Science Growing Spiders Recalled Due to Serious Ingestion Hazard
This children’s product can be mistaken for candy. If ingested, it
can expand inside your child’s body and lead to severe discomfort,
vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. These toys do not
show up on an X-ray and must be surgically removed.
No injuries have been reported for this recalled toy yet, but there was
an incident with a similar product in which an 8-month-old girl ingested
the ball, and it had to be surgically removed.
This product recall involves Monster Science Growing Spider toy sets, model
number 7280. The sets contain marble-sized polymer balls that can grow
up to eight times their original size. This recalled toy was sold at Cracker
Barrel Old Country Stores, Spirit Halloween stores and Target stores for
between $3 and $5.
If your child has this toy, you should immediately take it away from your
children and contact Be Amazing! Toys for a refund.
Children’s Books Recalled Due To Choking and Laceration Hazards
A metal rod holding small beads on the cover of these children’s
books can detach, and release the beads, which can be a choking hazard.
The detached metal bar can also expose a sharp edge and cut and injure
your child. No injuries have been reported yet.
The recalled board-shaped children’s books,
Count my Kisses and
Red, Green, Blue, I Love You, have cut out covers that serve as a handle and include an embedded bar
in the handle with beads. The recalled books were sold at Barnes &
Noble and online from June 2013 to August 2013 for about $8.
If your child has this book, you should return it to the place of purchase
for a full refund.
The Children’s Place Footed Pajamas Recalled Due to Violation of
Federal Flammability Standard
These recalled footed pajamas fail to meet the federal flammability standard
for children’s sleepwear since they don’t meet tight-fitting
sizing requirements. They could lead to a burn hazard, but no injuries
have been reported yet.
This children’s product recall involves three styles of The Children’s
Place bunny-themed one-piece cotton footed pajamas: one is pink with dark
pink bunnies, with a ruffle at the neck, and the other two are blue/green
with bunnies on the feet and bunny print fabric. The recalled pajamas
were sold at Children’s Place stores and online from January 2012
through May 2013 for about $15.
If your child has these recalled pajamas, you can return them to any The
Children’s Place store for a full refund.
