There have been quite a few recalls issued this past week. While I would love to provide some commentary, I think the recalls speak for themselves. Please think about manufacturer as well as individual responsibility as you read through these:
Toddler jeans: About 1,600 pairs of girl’s toddler jeans from Parigi Group were recalled because the ornamental gems and sequins on the jeans can present a choking hazard. Yes, bling on jeans can be hazardous.
Girl’s dresses: And sticking with hazardous clothing, some 1,500 girl’s sundresses from Matilda Jane were recalled because the buttons on the dress can pose a choking hazard if they come off. The Consumer Product Safety Commission received one report of the buttons coming off. Fortunately, there were no injuries.
Pogo sticks: Some 169,000 pogo sticks from Bravo Sports were recalled after a flaw was discovered on the bottom of the sticks that can cause the sticks to break in some parts. The company received more than 100 complaints.
Lean Cuisine meals: More than 10,000 packages of Lean Cuisine spaghetti with meatballs were recalled after hard chunks of plastic were discovered in some meals. The meals were packaged in October and distributed to a number of states.
