Other Important Recall Notifications That You Need To Be Aware Of:

Recall Alert: 1.5 million Chests Of Drawers Pose Tip-Over Danger

The recall involves “Mainstays” chests of drawers sold in six colors at Walmart and other retailers nationwide, as well as online at Walmart.com.

The chests are unstable if they’re not anchored to the wall, which poses serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in death or injuries to children.

Owners can contact the distributor, Ameriwood Home for a free repair kit that includes a wall anchoring device and feet for the unit.

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it into an area that children cannot access until it is properly anchored.

Last year the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of 29 million IKEA chests and drawers which did not comply with the performance requirements of the U.S. voluntary industry standard namely, ASTM F2057-14.

The recall came after an incident in which a toddler from Apple Valley, Minn. died when a MALM 6-drawer chest fell on top of him. This is the third reported death involving the MALM chests and dressers.

If not properly anchored to the wall, the recalled chests and dressers are unstable, which pose a tip-over and entrapment hazard which can result in death or injuries to children.

After the death of 3 children due to the tipping of furniture dressers in the U.S. IKEA agreed to pay a total of $50 million to the families of the children.

The lawyers of the families also confirmed that the IKEA had also agreed to donate funds to children’s hospitals as part of the settlement agreement.

2 of the toddlers died in 2014, in separate incidents when MALM dressers fell on them.

The third death was that of a 22-month-old boy who was killed this year in a similar incident. It had occurred after IKEA had announced a repair program which included a free wall-anchoring kit.

In June 2016, IKEA also recalled 8 million of the MALM chests and dressers and 21 million similar models of chests and dressers in the United States.

In Canada, about 6.6 million were also recalled at the time.

Popular Baby Bottle Dish Soap Recalled

 

Ironically, a product which is actually meant to clean bacteria away is now being recalled because it may contain bacteria.

A recall has now been issued for Dr. Brown’s Natural Bottle & Dish Soap and Dr. Brown’s bottle brush cleaning kit.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the bottle and dish soap may have harmful bacteria which could pose a hazard to people with impaired immune systems.

The recalled products were sold between September 2016 and June 2017 at stores nationwide.

Around 23,000 bottles are included in this recall.

Thus far, no injuries have been reported.

Consumers who cleaned bottles with the recalled soap are encouraged to boil or sanitize the bottles, the CPSC have advised.

Contact Dr. Brown’s directly for a replacement.
