You would never imagine that the toys or clothes you buy your children harming them, but they can because of negligent companies. Product recalls are important to stay on top of to avoid injuries. To help protect your children from injuries, here are some of the October Consumer Product Safety Commission's children's products recalls:
Trail Crest Recalls Children's Hooded Sweatshirts Due to Strangulation Hazard
These recalled hoodies and jackets have drawstrings through the hood, which pose a strangulation hazard to young children, but no injuries have been reported yet.
This product recall involves Trail Crest brand boys and girls hooded sweatshirts that come in camouflage, birch, pink and camouflage, and purple and camouflage. There is a tag sewn on the outside of the jacket left sleeve with style number 29121. They were sold at Zulily.com and other stores nationwide from November 2012 to February 2013 for about $15.
