All the Dangerous Baby Products & Toys Recalled in September and October

Clothing, playground equipment, and infant carriers are among the products recently recalled.

On average, more than 100 kids toys and baby products are recalled each year due to defect. And even though most recalls are voluntary, companies are rarely inclined to shout their foibles from the mountaintop. As a result, few parents ever hear about them. In fact, only 30 percent of recalled products ever make their way back to the manufacturer. Instead, they are handed down to other new parents, find their way into consignment shops, or end up on Goodwill shelves where they can potentially harm other children.

RELATED: The Dangerous Toy and Baby Product Recalls Parents Should Know About

Fortunately, there are multiple government agencies ⏤ most importantly the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which has jurisdiction over more than 15,000 kinds of consumer products ⏤ and watchdog groups like KidsinDanger.org  and Safe Kids Worldwide who keep tabs on it all. In fact, six federal agencies have joined together to create Recalls.gov, an online hub where they “alert the American people to unsafe, hazardous or defective products.”

We also like to keep you updated on the latest defective toys, baby and parenting gear, and kid products, so that you don’t have to spend your day scouring government websites. We include the product, the defect, and the course of action you should take if you own the product. Although in all cases, the first action is always to get the dangerous toy away from your child. That said, here are all of last month’s recalls.
