Safety recall with children's products

In the most recent lawsuit against Toys R Us, it stated that Toys R Us knowingly stocked a baby product that had caused serious injuries. Bumbo is a simple molded plastic seat that is more upright than a bouncy chair, and less rigid than a high chair, which made it a hit with parents. Bumbo has sold nearly 4 million units in the United States since 2003; however, in 2007 it was recalled due to the fact that U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission had received 28 reports of young children (between 3 to 10 months old) falling out of their seat. Three of the twenty-eight injuries were skull fractures in which the child fell out of their seat which had been placed on top of a table. Bumbo placed warning labeling on their product stating that theses seat should not be used on any elevated surfaces. Since the recall in 2007, Bumbo and CPSC are aware of at least 46 falls from elevated surfaces that occurred prior to 2007 recall-resulting in 14 skull fractures, two concussions and one incident of a broken limb.

Playgrounds include a variety of recreational equipment such as monkey bars, tire swings, jungle gyms, see-saws, swing sets, merry-go- rounds and overhead ladders.

Cup of Noodles can pose serious burn risk

Recent studies show that instant cups of soup can pose serious burn risks. Depending on the style of the container, they are susceptible to tipping over very easily. The hot liquid can burn a person's chest, hands, arms, and legs. The noodles retain heat and stick to the skin. Children are also common victims of this burn injury.
