No Stroll in the Park – Does Graco’s Stroller Recall Affect You?

By admin on January 21, 2010

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled all Graco Passage, Alano, and Spree strollers manufactured between October 2004 and February 2008. The stroller have caused seven severe injuries to toddler’s fingers. Consumers are advised to stop using these models and contact Graco  to receive a free repair kit.

 

Graco is currently reaching out to consumers with information about the recall and repair kits via twitter and their blog. The repair kits will be available in one to two weeks. An instructional video, below, has been made available by Graco to assist those affected by the recall in properly attaching their new kit.

 

If a dangerous or defective product injures an unwary consumer, the manufacture is considered legally liable for product liability, as long as the consumer using the product as it was meant to be used at the time of injury. If you or your child has been injured by a recalled Graco stroller, a product liability settlement might be in your future. Contact The Saftler Law Firm today to schedule a consultation.

 

 

 

 

Don’t Be Blind to Child Safety – National Window Blind Recall to Save Children

By admin on January 7, 2010

The Consumer Product Safety Commission urges parents to contact the Window Covering Safety Council for information on a recall of more than 50 million Roman-style shades and roll-up blinds.  The recall is intended to prevent the risk of strangulation of young children.  To date, hundreds of American babies and toddlers have strangled to death on mini-blind cords.

If your child or a child you know has suffered a strangulation injury or a wrongful death due to a cord on Roman blinds, roll-up blinds, mini-blinds, or any other corded window covering, you should report the accident to the Consumer Product Safety Commission immediately.  Like all manufactures, window treatment manufacturers have a legal responsibility to offer only products that are safe for use by the public for their intended purpose.  When someone, in this case a child, is killed or seriously injured due to a manufacturer’s error, victims have the right to sue.

For more information, Parents for Window Blind Safety has produced a public service announcement about the dangers of window blinds:
