You never would intentionally injure your child, but it’s easy to buy them a toy or children’s product that could harm them without even realizing it. We want to help you keep your children safe by sharing with you some of the Consumer Products Safety Commission’s April children’s products recalls:
Baby Socks Recalled by Trumpette Due to Choking Hazard
The flowers and the bows on these Trumpette baby socks can detach, posing a choking hazard to your child. The company has received eight reports of the flowers or bows detaching from the socks, but no injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Trumpette’s “Aubree’s” socks, which have flowers attached to the toes, and “Hearts” socks that have bows attached to the toes of the heart-patterned socks. These recalled socks were sold at Buy Buy Baby, Right Start and Trumpette stores and online from December 2012 through February 2013 for about $15.
If you own these recalled socks, you should take them away from your baby and remove the flowers or bows, or return the socks to the place of purchase or Trumpette for a full refund or store credit.
Gingham Bunny Forks and Spoons Recalled Due to Choking and Ingestion Hazards
The pink coloring on the bunny’s ears can come off, posing choking and ingestion hazards to babies. Reed and Barton has received one report of the pink coloring on the bunny’s ears coming off the flatware, but no injuries were reported.
This recall involves infant flatware from the Gingham Bunny Flatware Collection. It’s silver-colored, nickel-plated and has a bunny with pink coloring on its ears at the end of the handle. The recalled flatware was sold at Reed and Barton factory stores, various gift shops and online from September 2012 through January 2013 for between $15 and $40.
If you have these recalled flatware, you should immediately take it away from your baby, and contact Reed and Barton for a full refund or free replacement flatware.
Huffy Recalls Slider Tricycles Due to Loss of Control Hazard
The handlebar on this Huffy tricycle can unexpectedly loosen while in use, causing the rider to lose control. This poses crash and fall hazards for the rider, but no injuries have been reported yet.
The recalled tricycle is a 2012 model, three-wheeled Slider. It has a white frame with a black seat and black handlebars, and “Huffy” is printed on the front of the frame, and “Slider” is printed on the frame’s side. The tricycles were sold at Toys R Us from January 2013 through February 2013 for about $100.
If your child has this tricycle, they should stop using it, and contact Huffy for instructions on how to obtain a refund.
