When a product gets recalled, most people probably think that the danger is over and done. As you’ll soon discover, though, just because a product has been recalled doesn’t mean it won’t make its way to other shelves.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a warning to consumers that an error has resulted in the continued sale of products originally sold at Meijer Inc. These products, which were recalled for a variety of safety reasons, did not get disposed of properly. Instead, they were given to thrift stores, discount retail outlets, flea markets, and dollar stores to be sold for a deep discount.
The warning covers Innovage Discovery Kids Animated Lamps, Infantino Baby Slings, Hoover Windtunnel Bagless Vacuums, Fisher Price Ocean Wonders Aquariums, FP Little People Stand and Play Rampways, FP Barbie and Kawasaki Tough Trikes, Munchkin Bathtub Subs, and Sassy Refreshing Rings Infant Teethers.
Each of the recalled products listed above entails its own recall procedures, and consumers worried that they might be in possession of the items in question should head over to the CPSC’s website to learn more information. All products should have their usage discontinued at once.
As a Bakersfield personal injury lawyer, I hate to see safety defects in products, but I think I’m more disheartened by the fact these items still made their way onto store shelves. This is simply unacceptable to a personal injury lawyer in San Bernardino like myself.
