The Dept of Health and Human Services provides some sobering facts about infant mortality. 2 out of every 100,000 deaths are the result of suffocation. 7.4 out of every 100,000 deaths are the result of poisoning. 6.4 out of every 100,000 deaths are the result of falls. And, yes, many of these deaths are related in some way to product liabilities. And, while instances of mortalities are cause for alarm, the sheer numbers of injuries that occur dwarf the mortality statistics. Common children's toys, for example, are the number one cause of choking incidents that result in emergency room visits.Contact Our Baby Crib Recall Lawyers Today »
No parent wishes to see any harm befall their child. That is why most parents will take extraordinary steps to ensure a safe a living environment for their child. However, much of this safe environment revolves around consumer trust that products purchased for the child will not come with serious and adverse safety risks. Unfortunately, there are far too many instances where products make their way into the consumer marketplace that presents risks to a child. This is an unfortunate breach of trust that sometimes comes with serious consequences. Granted, no manufacturer purposely releases a harmful product on the market. But, oversights and accents do happen and sometimes they happen with tragic consequences. Numerous crib recalls provide a sobering warning regarding child products safety. While crib recalls have received much media attention, there have been other instances with other products where dangerous risks have been present.
Toys from China - To provide a comprehensive list of the dangerous toys that have been imported from China would be space prohibitive. Suffice to say, Chinese manufacturing has been far from cautionary in relation to child safety. The presence of dangerous lead paint in toys is among the most dangerous risks. Lead paint is poisonous and it can lead to fatalities if ingested. Hence, there have been a number of Chinese toy recalls.
Stroller Recalls – Much like crib recalls, a number of baby strollers have been pulled from the marketplace as a result of defects. Graco strollers were among those pulled from shelves. This does not bode well for the brand's name since Graco cribs were also targeted in recalls in the past as well.
Car Seats and Infant Carriers – Once again, and the reason that parents purchase these items are to ensure the safety of their child. And, once again, many parents are shocked to discover the shocking degree of product defects in many of these items. For example, Playtex, ZoloWear, and Durel have all been the subject of recalls and warnings.
Stuffed Animals - Yes, even seemingly innocuous items such as stuffed animals come with a multitude of smothering, choking, and suffocation risks.
Teething Supplies – Without a doubt, no other product defect could strike more fear in parents than a defective teething product. This is in large part due to the choking hazard presented. As previously mentioned, the number one cause of infant/child fatalities is choking. So, documented problems teething items sold by Duckie, Magic Cabin, and Prestige Toys probably create a sense of nervousness among many parents.Do You Have A Baby Crib Recall Case? »
