Your children play with toys and use children’s products every day, and of course you would never buy them something that would harm them. But sometimes defective toys and children’s products are recalled because they have caused harm to children due to a company’s negligence. To help protect your loved ones, here are some of the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s children’s products recalls for April:
Carter’s Recalls Infant Clothing with Zippers Due to Choking Hazard
The zipper pull on these infant pajamas can detach, posing a choking hazard for your child, but there have been no injuries reported yet.
This recall involves eight styles of one-piece, footed cotton clothing for infants made by Carter’s. They have a zipper from the foot to the neck and were sold in sizes newborn, 3, 6 and 9 months. They were sold at OshKosh B’gosh, Walmart and Target from December 2012 through January 2013 for between $7 and $20.
If your infant uses this recalled item, you should immediately take the clothing away and return it to Carter’s for a full refund.
Small World Toys Recalls Spin-A-Mals Farm and Safari Puzzles Due to Choking Hazard
The small pegs on these puzzle boards can loosen and separate from the boards, posing a choking hazard for your child. The company has received four reports of pegs separating from puzzle boards, but no injuries have been reported yet.
The recalled products are Ryan’s Room brand Spin-A-Mals Farm and Spin-A-Mals Safari puzzles. Both puzzles are made of wood and consist of a painted, rectangular board with pegs mounted to it and removable gear and animal-shaped pieces. The puzzles were sold at toy stores and in catalogs from May 2012 through October 2012 for about $25.
If your child uses this recalled toy, you should immediately take the puzzle away and contact Small World Toys for a free replacement toy.
