It’s been a while since I last posted on product recalls but today’s post starts with a biggie. If you own a Graco stroller, take note!
1. In Canada and United States: Graco Children’s Products Inc. recalls strollers & travel systems
Reason for recall: Laceration hazard. This is a big one and it’s bad. With over 4 million sold in the U.S. and 200,000 sold in Canada, this recall affects a lot of people. The worst part is, there have been injuries and the word amputation shows up! EEK!!!! Click here for details.
2. In Canada: Urgent safety information for insulin pump users
Reason for this notice: apparently, there’s been an increase in reports of the tubing getting detached at the connect/disconnect location on the identified products. If you use an insulin pump, do check out this posting to make sure you’re not affected! Click here to read more.
3. In Canada: Stocklots Distribution recalls Boys Print Fleece Top with Hood Drawstring
Reason for Recall: Strangulation Hazard. Drawstrings…sigh. Can’t win. Not many sold but still important to post as a constant reminder for all of us to be mindful of what we buy! Click for more details.
4. In Canada and U.S. : Leatherman Tool Group Inc. Recalls Leatherman Leap Multi-Purpose Tool
Reason for recall: laceration hazard. While not many were sold, the fact that it’s a tool with a blade makes it pretty scary! Click here for more details.
5. In Canada and the United States: Mohawk Industries, Inc. recalls Altitude Shag Gold Rug
Reason for recall: flammability hazard which is not good considering it’s a rug with a lot of surface area for danger! Click here for more details.
