Product Liability: Children’s Products

By Alpert Schreyer on April 15, 2019

For parents, it is a never-ending duty to try and keep their children safe. If the world was perfect then the manufacturers of products marketed for children would ensure that the products are safely designed and manufactured. This doesn’t always happen, however, and defective products place children at serious risk of injury. Common defective children’s products include:

Cribs 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) promulgates guidelines that manufacturers should meet in order to ensure that cribs are safe. Cribs that do not meet these safety standards can cause suffocation and other dangerous risks to children.

Toys

Toys are recalled for defects on a regular basis due to dangerous situations loose parts, choking hazards, and faulty safety features. Babies especially put everything in their mouths so toys that are not properly manufactured or fail to contain proper warnings or appropriate age restrictions can cause serious injury.

Strollers 

The CPSC has safety standards for strollers and baby carriages that all manufacturers must adhere to. Defective strollers and carriages can cause a wide range of injuries including amputated fingers and severe lacerations. They can sometimes pose suffocation risks if not designed properly. Strollers are sometimes recalled for situations ranging from choking hazards to entrapment risks.

High Chairs

Many different high chairs have been recalled due to design defects or problems with the materials used in manufacturing. High chairs  that are not properly designed or manufactured can tip over due to instability, contain faulty restraints and can collapse as the result of inadequate locking mechanisms.

Car Seats

Car seat usage is required by law in Maryland, and the use of properly designed car seats can save children’s lives. But defectively manufactured and designed car seats can cause a child serious injury. Car seats have been recalled for dangerous defects such as broken handles, parts that can pose a choking hazard and insufficient restraints.

Check for Any Recalls

If you have concerns about the safety of the products in your home, you can check the recall database. If you believe you may have a defective product in your home that has not been recalled, you can report the product defect to CPSC, and the agency will investigate.
