CPSC Issues Two February Recalls for Children’s Products

Published on Feb 15, 2012 at 4:41 pm in Product Liability.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued two important recalls for child products in the month of February. The Commission warns parents to immediately stop use of these products to prevent a dangerous child injury accident. The two recalled products are listed below, along with information on who to contact regarding repair kits for the item or returns.

Carter’s Watch the Wear Bodysuits and Sleep ‘n Play Garments:

A voluntary recall of this product has been issued that affects approximately 128,000 units. The snaps can detach from the garment’s fabric, which can cause a choking hazard to infant or young children. The manufacturer of this item, Weeplay Kids, LLC, has received reports of the snaps detaching, but fortunately no injuries have occurred. The garments were sold at a variety of retail stores from November 2010 through August 2011 for $4 to $9 in packages of two, three, or five, and have “Carter’s Watch the Wear” printed on the package or inside the neckline. For more information, contact Weeplay toll-free at (888) 226-2200 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or by e-mail at info@weeplaykids.com.

Bumbleride Indie & Indie Twin Strollers:

This voluntary recall, issued in conjunction with the manufacturer Bumbleride Inc., affects approximately 28,000 units. The front wheel of the stroller can break at the axle hub which may cause it to tip, posing a fall hazard. The stroller was sold at baby product stores and online retailers, and online at Bumbleride.com, from January 2009 to January 2012 for between $500 and $700. The recalled Bumbleride Indie strollers include model numbers I-107, I-110, and I-205 with a date of manufacture from January 2009 to August 2011. The recalled Bumbleride Indie Twin strollers include model numbers IT-108, IT-111, and IT-305 with the same manufacturing dates. For additional information, consumers should visit the company’s website at www.support.bumbleride.com, contact Bumbleride by e-mail at support@bumbleride.com, or call (800) 530-3930 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.

As consumers, we trust that the products we purchase, especially for children, will be safe and manufactured with the highest standards of quality. However, when the makers of a product do not thoroughly test it for safety or take shortcuts in its production, the innocent consumer will be the one to pay the price for the manufacturers’ negligence. If your child has been harmed by a defective product, an experienced Kentucky product liability lawyer can help you obtain compensation for your child’s injuries and hold negligent manufacturers legally accountable.
