As a father myself, I know your children are the most important people to you in your life. You do everything in your power to keep them safe, healthy, and out of harm’s way.
Unfortunately, the products we give our kids, even toys, can have dangerous malfunctions. As a product liability lawyer, I’m constantly watching recalls issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Last month, the FDA and the CPSC issued recalls on a few items that may already be in your children’s possession. If you have given your child any of the following items, be sure to take them away:
- Torn and Glasser, Inc. is recalling packaged pistachios because they are potentially contaminated with salmonella.
- Staples is recalling Bermond Fabric chairs because the base of the chair can posing a fall hazard to users.
- Western Mixers Produce & Nut Company is recalling ARO and Treasured Harvest pistachios because of potential salmonella contamination.
- Somersault Snack Co., LLC is recalling 6-count Multipack Pacific sea salt products because of undeclared milk products.
- Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese Company is recalling Petit and Les Frėres cheese because of potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
- H-E-B is recalling Outdoor Solutions hammock with Sunshade because the seams can rip open, putting the user at risk of falling.
- Toys “R” Us is recalling remote controlled three-channel helicopter toys because the rechargeable battery can overheat, posing a burn risk and fire hazard.
- Angel’s Touch Collections is recalling butterfly and shell decorative lamps because of exposed wiring that can be a fire hazard.
- Yamaha is recalling Big Bear ATVs because the front shock absorber can break and cause a crash.
If you or your children have any of these products, return them immediately to the store. In the unfortunate event that a faulty or malfunctioning product has injured you, be sure to contact an experienced personal injury attorney for guidance.
