Millions of baby products recalled after reported safety violations
Posted on July 13th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
According to an article published in Ohio, two unrelated recalls have initiated the return of more than four million baby products across the country after reports of suffocation and drowning deemed the products unsafe. The first major recall concerned floating pool toys made for infants from Aqua-Leisure Industries. The toys have been recalled after parents filed complaints due to tearing in the leg straps and seats. Tragically, some cases involved a child who fell straight through into the pool and drowned. The Aqua-Leisure floating toys were sold between December 2002 and June 2009 at major stores like Target, Toys R’ Us, Wal-Mart, Dollar General, Walgreens, Kmart and others. On top of the pool toy recall, over 400,000 baby cribs have also been recalled by Simplicity generic tetracycline Incorporated after an 8-month old baby in Houston died from suffocation. According to more than 25 product complaints, the drop-down side of the crib was defective and often became detached. Both companies have advised all customers who purchased these products to stop use immediately and return them to the original store of purchase for a full refund.
