Each year, thousands of dangerous or potentially dangerous products are recalled, with many of these items geared towards babies and infants. The reasons for these recalls will vary from product to product, but a large portion of these recalls are because of faulty product design, lead paint hazards, and products that are improperly labeled.

Product recalls occur every day and the vast majority of these recalls, 42%, are children’s products. What may be surprising is that 80% of all U.S. toys are made in China and few of these toys are inspected. Each year, over 220,000 children in the United States are treated in emergency rooms for toy-related injuries even with new rules set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regarding lead and phthalate levels.
Potentially Dangerous Products
There are a wide variety of recalls for baby products each year. Some of the most common recalls involve the following:
- Toys-Lead paint used in toys can cause serious physical and psychological issues in developing children including developmental delays, seizures, and mental disability as a result of lead exposure. Additionally, small parts, fake furs, flammable materials, strings and other hanging pieces, and easily accessed batteries can pose risks to young children, including strangulation, choking, burns, and lacerations.
- Baby products-Cribs, sleepers, mobiles, walkers, strollers, car seats, and high-chairs are some of the most commonly recalled baby products. Even though these types of products are required to follow standards by the CPSC and the Child Safety Protection Act, thousands of recalls occur with these products every year.
When a child is injured due to a defective or dangerous product, the case would be considered a product liability claim. Product liability claims can be brought under the theories of negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. These types of claims can be complex and often require the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
