Every parent’s top priority is keeping their children safe. Being aware of product recalls for baby products is an important way to ensure the safety of your child. No matter how sure you are about the products you are purchasing, keeping up to date on recalls can keep your baby safe. Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly recalled baby products and why they receive recalls.

Baby Toys:

Parents generally want their child surrounded by colorful, fun toys to play with. However, there’s always the fear that something may go wrong with the toy, causing harm to the infant. One of the most common risks in baby toy products is potential choking hazards. Due to the designs of certain toys, parts may become loose and put your child at risk to choke. This is especially common in toys with rattles.

Baby Strollers:

Although baby strollers are generally thought to be a pretty safe product for babies, there have been recalls for a number of reasons. The most common reason strollers are recalled is risk of injury for the infant. Everything from folding areas that can break or amputate their fingers to bars that can put them at a strangulation can be common reasons a stroller is recalled. Some strollers have even had parts that be broken off and choked on.

Baby Cribs:

Much like with baby strollers, you wouldn’t think cribs could pose much of a threat to your child. However, they are still recalled for various reasons. The most common reason for baby crib recalls is the possibility of an opening in the crib. This allows the baby to become stuck or even fall out of the crib, risking serious injury or even death.

While it can be a scary thought to consider, baby products can fail and cause harm. However, it is possible to stay up-to-date on all baby product recalls. By registering with Home Recalls, you will be updated whenever a recall is announced for your registered baby products.
