Two manufacturers of children’s products sold at national retailers and online have recalled a series of beach chairs and strollers after numerous complaints to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) over possible laceration, fall and choking hazards.
If your child was injured by one of the products detailed below or if you were hurt by a defective consumer good, the Mobile, Alabama, product liability attorneys at Long & Long may be able to help you pursue financial compensation for resulting damages.
Kolcraft Enterprises announced a recall of more than 5,500 Contours Options LT Tandem strollers because the front-wheel assembly can detach, and cause the child in the stroller to fall. Furthermore, the CPSC said that the support screws can also break off and pose a choking hazard to children.
The Contours Options LT Tandem stroller recall affects all strollers with the model number ZT012. The model is found on a label on the rear leg of the stroller. The strollers were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, children’s specialty stores and online at Amazon.com and Target.com between February 2012 and July 2012 for about $250. Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately and contact www.kolcraft.com for replacement part information.
Meanwhile, Downeast Concepts—which does business as Backyard and Beyond—is recalling more than 15,000 children’s folding beach chairs due to sharp, exposed metal rivets that pose a laceration hazard to children. The affected chairs have white aluminum tube frames with pink, yellow, blue or purple fabric seats; the chair backs feature fish, palm trees or mermaids.
The beach chairs were sold at numerous retailers nationwide and online from June 2011 to June 2012 for between $13 and $25. Consumers should stop using them immediately and contact www.downeastconcepts.com for refund information.
