Another day, another recall of a children's product.
In the second infant-product recall in as many months, Graco Children's Products Inc. has announced a defective product recall of two million baby strollers after causing the deaths of four young children. Prior to the recall, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) received reports of five additional infants becoming entrapped in the strollers, with resulting cuts, bruises, and difficulty breathing.
After several reports of malfunctions, accidents and injuries, Fisher-Price has recalled over 11 million defective products. The toys recalled include tricycles, high chairs, inflatable balls, and toy cars for babies and small children.
Two years after a young Scotch Plains girl suffered injuries from a toy previously banned by the state, a New Jersey Superior Court Judge ordered the manufacturer to pay the State of New Jersey more than $67,000 in fines and legal fees.
