The 5 Biggest Product Recalls of 2015

Between work, the kids’ activities, running errands, and everything else parents have going on, it is easy to miss even the most important safety alert. Fortunately, KID has complied a list of some of the biggest children’s product recalls that you might have missed. Check out some of the biggest children’s product recalls from this past year:

 

  1. Rainbow Play Systems Plastic Trapeze Rings (Fall Hazard– 100 incidents, 15 injuries)

These rings can unexpectedly crack or break while children are playing and are responsible for 100 incidents in the United States already.

See here for full recall information.

  1. Burley Child Bicycle Trailers (Injury Hazard– 35 incidents, 2 injuries)

Over 34,000 of these trailers were recalled due to the fact that the black plastic tow bar receivers can separate from the tow bar when they appear to be connected, posing serious risks to the child in the trailer.

See here for full recall information.

  1. Target Cartoon Water Bottles by Zak Designs (Choking Hazard– 178,000 units recalled)

These colorful water bottles were sold at Target during a popular back-to-school promotion, but the inner plastic straw in the flip-top portion can break causing a choking hazard.

See here for full recall information.

  1. MZB Children’s Watches (Skin Irritation Risk– 1.9 million units recalled)

This recall flew under the radar because it may seem minor, but beware when the case back of the watch detaches, as it can lead to chemical burns.

See here for full recall information.

4

  1. Britax Clicktight Car Seat (Accident Safety Hazard– 200,000 units recalled)

The harness adjuster button may remain down even when the harness in tightened, allowing children to loosen the harness by moving around, and putting children at risk if there is an accident.

See here for full recall information.

In addition to products, a few different food items intended for children were recalled this year for various reasons including GoGo SqueeZ Apple Sauce (mold) and Spaghetti O’s (choking hazard).

Taking a moment out of your busy day to remove any of these items can help get your new year off to a safer start! And don’t forget that these are only a few of the recalled products from this past year, visit this page to view the full list.

  • I was pretty amazed at the amount of car seat recalls in the past couple of years. The mold in the pouched products is NOT surprising and personally if parents have an issue with that then they should buy reusable pouches and fill them their selves. Just my 2 cents though.

  • Thanks for the post. We actually have both of the food items in our house. I would never have known about the recalls if it were not for this post. Thank you so much!

  • Thanks for the heads up. I have noticed the Target bottles that broke. A friend of mine had one, but luckily it broke and the child didn’t choke on it. I have heard of lots of recalls but it seems we don’t always get a lot of info about them. I think these need to be shared more often.
