Ohio Product Liability Lawyers: Childcare Product Recall AlertMarch 7, 2015
Earlier this week, Dream on Me issued a recall of approximately 13,000 bassinets due to a potential suffocation hazard. The defective product, labelled for sale as The 2-in-1 Bassinet to Cradle, was sold through major online retailers Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com, ToysRUs.com and Kohls.com.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the bassinet’s wire frame can malfunction during use, causing a portion of it to collapse. There is at least one known incident where this malfunctioning of the product occurred while an infant was asleep in the bassinet. The defective bassinet, manufactured by Shanghaid Daafu Baby of China and imported and sold by Dream on Me Inc., should not be used due to the serious risks it creates.
Many do not realize that suffocation is the leading cause of death of U.S. children less than one year old. In fact, suffocation accounts for about 2/3 of all deaths in the demographic. Infants simply do not have the ability to protect themselves from suffocation hazards, and parents must constantly be on watch to protect their infant children from injuries.
As Ohio product liability lawyers and as parents, it is endlessly frustrating that the same manufacturers that profit by selling children’s products, through their negligence, continue to add to the dangers faced by our children. Parents and children deserve to know that the products they use are free from unreasonable dangers.
