Defective Children’s Products That Can Cause Injury

According to the 2010 Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report, there were an estimated 81,700 injuries associated with nursery products among children under five years of age. Infant carriers, car seats, cribs, mattresses, strollers, carriages, and highchairs were associated with approximately 68% of the reported injuries. Also, according to the report, falls were a major cause of injury with the head being the body part most commonly affected.

Additionally, during the three-year period between 2006 and 2008, the report found 304 deaths associated with nursery products among children under the age of five.

The following products were associated with 90%of the fatalities reported:

  • Cribs
  • Bassinets
  • Mattresses
  • Playpens
  • Play yards
  • Baths
  • Bath seats
  • Bathinettes

Recalls Of Dangerous & Hazardous Toys & Cribs

Since November 1, 2007, the CPSC has been closely monitoring the incoming incident reports related to cribs, bassinets, and play yards in a pilot project known as the Early Warning System. As a result of the close follow up to the incident reports, many product-related recalls were issued.

Additionally, defective toys have been a concern for many parents as a result of the media coverage relating to the Chinese-made toys that contained lead paint. As a result of the findings of lead paint, Mattel, the world's largest toy company, had to announce a recall of millions of toys. Only a few short months later, Mattel again had to recall millions of toys as a result of the findings of a design flaw relating to magnets that had come loose and been ingested by children, causing several fatalities.
