Keeping track of recalls

Over 200,000 of these play yards have been recalled.  Do you own one?

Over 200,000 of these play yards have been recalled. Do you own one?

It seems like my email box has been filling up lately with notices of recalls. Many of them are products purchased by parents of young children.  For example, in today’s news, Fisher Price is recalling 200,000 play yards due to fall and entrapment hazards. There have been at least 1,350 reports of one or more rails collapsing. There were numerous reports of children receiving bumps and bruises when the side rail collapsed. There were five reports of injuries which included a broken nose, a broken wrist, a mild concussion, a cut to the hand which required stitches, and a chipped tooth.  The best way I have found to keep up with the notices is just a click away. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is encouraging people to sign up for their email notification system. As they say on their website, it is free, fast and it could save your life. Go to www.cpsc.gov to sign up and read more about the latest recalls.
