Around 2 Million Baby Bathers Recalled For Fall Hazard/ Head Injury Risk

Around 2 million of Summer Infant Inc’s Mother’s Touch/Deluxe Baby Bathers have been recalled because of a tendency for the wire frame to disconnect from the side hinge, posing a fall hazard to the infant, reports the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The baby bathers, manufactured in China and sold at merchandise stores across the U.S. and online between September 2004 and November 2011 in a price range of $15-$30, have been recalled because when the bather is lifted with the infant in it, the wire frame can break away from the side hinge, and the baby can drop out of the bather, posing a fall risk and potentially serious head injury to the child.

The bathers have adjustable side hinges, and some carry a head support cushion.

There have been seven reports of falling babies due to the bathers breaking in the U.S., five of which included head injuries to the child. Four of those children received skull fractures, and the fifth was transported to an emergency room with a bump on the head.

Around 119,000 pacifiers, manufactured in China and sold at various dollar, discount and children’s apparel stores across the U.S. between October 2009 and June 2012 for around $1, have been recalled because the nipples can disconnect from the pacifier base and pose a choking hazard to the child user.

Electric-Powered Adult Tricycles Recalled For Defective Rear Axle

A popular brand of adult tricycles has been recalled due to a defect in the rear axle that may allow it to break, causing a rear wheel to separate and leading to a fall risk, reports PRNewswire.

Around 2,100 of Tricruiser’s Electric-Powered Adult Tricycles, sold at independent bicycle shops and electric bicycle shops across the United States, as well as online at Walmart.com, from March 2007 to March 2012 for a price ranging from $850 to $1120 have been recalled due to a defect in the rear axle. The axle has a tendency to break, leading to a rear tire becoming detached from the vehicle, posing a fall hazard to the rider.

The tricycles, manufactured in China by Acetrikes Industrial Co., Ltd., have so far led to six accidents, five of which ended in bruises and scrapes for the driver.

The affected tricycles are battery operated, and have a basket between the rear wheels, sized at 24″. The brand name eZip or iZip is located on the sides of the bike, as well as above the front wheel.

In-ground Pool Slides Recalled Due To One Death, Several Injuries

Banzai Falls In-ground Pool Slides have been recalled due to a tendency for portions of the slide to deflate, which has led to one reported death and multiple severe neck injuries, reports the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Around 21,000 of Banzia’s inflatable slides, which were made in China and sold across the U.S. at the popular retail chains Walmart and Toys R Us from January 2005 to June 2009 for a retail price of about $250, have been recalled because of a tendency for the slide to deflate, allowing the slider to hit the ground underneath the slide and potentially become injured.

In addition, the slide is reportedly unstable and can topple over sideways under both still and windy conditions. It also carries insufficient instructions and warnings.

A 29-year-old mother in Andover, Massachusetts died when she fractured her neck while going down a Banzai in-ground pool water slide. She struck her head on the edge of the concrete pool after the bottom of the slide became somewhat deflated.

Further, a man in Springfield, Missouri became a quadriplegic after using the slide, and a woman in Allentown, Pennsylvania fractured her neck.

The recalled Banzai in-ground pool slides have a blue-colored base, a yellow sliding surface and an archway going over the top portion of the slide. Water is meant to be sprayed down the slide’s slope using a hose.

The barcode number of the defective slide is 2675315734, with a model number of 15734, both of which can be found on the slide’s original packing but not on the slide itself.

If you own a Banzai Falls In-ground Pool Slide, you are encouraged to stop its use immediately and return it to the Walmart or Toy R Us closest to you for a complete refund. For further information, you can reach Walmart at (800) 925-6278, or visit www.walmartstores.com. To reach Toys R Us for more information, call (800) 869-7787, or visit them online at www.toysrus.com.
