5 Most Dangerous Recalled Toys

By Richard Console on January 30, 2012 - Comments off

You hear it all the time; another popular toy is being recalled because of a health hazard posed to kids. There are many different reasons a toy can be recalled such as a choking hazard, fall hazard, lead paint, laceration risk, and more. Playtime should be free of hazard so that children can have fun and grow without the risk of injury. The Consumer Product Safety Commission works diligently to make sure any products that are dangerous for the consumer are removed from shelves and that the situation is remedied.

While there are numerous toy recalls each year, these five recalls are not ones we will ever forget. The large scale of the recalls in addition to the injuries that resulted landed them on this list of the most dangerous toy recalls ever.

5. Easy Bake Oven


Recalled: February 6, 2007

Hazard: Entrapment and burn hazard.

Injuries: Second and third-degree burns, hands getting stuck in the machine, one girl underwent a partial finger amputation as a result.

By the time the recall was issued 29 children had gotten their hands or fingers caught in the oven and there were 5 reports of burns. This version of the classic toy was meant to look more like a real oven and loaded from the front.

4. Sky Dancers


Recalled: June 27, 2000 and October 24, 2002

Hazard: Injury Hazard

Injuries: Eye injuries, broken teeth, mild concussions, broken ribs, and facial lacerations.

The doll had the ability to fly, you would pull the draw string and the dolls rose into the air and spun around. There was no way of controlling the movement once in the air and as a result the dolls struck many children and adults on their way down.

3. Cabbage Patch Snacktime Kids


Recalled: “Voluntary recall program” January 6, 1997 and May 9, 2005

Hazard: Laceration hazard.

Injuries: Fingers and hair getting caught in the doll’s mouth causing lacerations.

The doll boasted the ability to eat snacks. The idea was you would put one of the snack sticks that came with the doll into her mouth and that would trigger an internal mechanism that mimicked chewing. The danger was that there was no on off switch so anything put into the dolls mouth triggered the gears to turn there were reports of children getting their fingers caught causing injury as well as the hair becoming stuck in the doll’s mouth.

2. EZ Sales Hammocks


Recalled: August 8, 1996

Hazard: Strangulation and death hazard.

Injuries: Death, brain damage, and strangulation.

The mini hammocks sold by more than 10 manufacturers did not have spreader bars. When children got in or out of the hammock it could wrap around their neck and strangle them. As of the recall report there had been 12 deaths.

1. Aqua Dots


Recalled: November 7, 2007

Hazard: Beads coated in toxic chemical.

Injuries: Ingestion of the beads could and did result in comas, respiratory depression, dizziness, and seizures.

What seemed like a great kid’s craft quickly turned tragic when it was found that there was a chemical on the beads that mimicked the effects of a dangerous drug, GHB. There were two incidents where children fell into comas before the recall was made.

Injuries that stem from defective or dangerous products can be very serious and the responsible parties should be held accountable.

Ford Minivans, SUVs Recalled for Defects

By Staff on January 12, 2012 - Comments off

Ford Motor Company has recalled nearly 539,000 due to product defects that could pose fire hazards and loss of power. According to a Reuters news report, the automaker issued two separate recalls. Ford will recall 286,000 Ford Escape SUVs, model years 2001 and 2002, as well as 253,000 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans for the 2004 and 2005 model years. Ford officials say some of the SUVs were outfitted with a faulty brake master cylinder reservoir cap. This could cause the brake fluid to leak, resulting in an electrical short in the ABS posing a fire hazard. So far, there have been reports relating to property damage, but not injuries or car accidents as a result of these defects.

In a separate recall, the automaker recalled Ford and Mercury minivans because of a faulty torque converter. If the converter malfunctions, the vehicle could lose the ability to move forward and in reverse. Although this loss of power would still allow the driver to steer and stop the vehicle, there is an increased risk of a car accident.

Ford Recalls in 2011

According to a report in The Detroit News, Ford had the third highest number of vehicle defect recalls in the United States in 2011. Ford had 13 recall campaigns, which involved 3.3 million vehicles last year. That was an increase compared to the year 2010 when the automaker recalled 581,000 vehicles. Ford was pressured by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to recall more than 1.2 million F-150 pickup trucks for sudden or inadvertent airbag deployment.

Liability Issues

Automakers are responsible for designing and manufacturing quality vehicles that keep occupants safe. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a defective auto, you can file an auto products liability claim against the automaker seeking compensation. It is important to preserve the vehicle because it is the single, most important piece of evidence in an auto products liability case. The vehicle must also be thoroughly examined by an expert for product defects, malfunctions and other evidence. An experienced New Jersey personal injury lawyer will advise injured victims and their families in such cases about their legal rights and options.

Build-A-Bear Recalls Colorful Hearts Teddy Bear

By Richard Console on December 29, 2011 - Comments off

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that on December 23, Build-A-Bear issues a massive voluntary recall of one of their teddy bears. There is a hazard of the eyes loosening and falling off the bear, which poses a choking hazard to children. The bear was available at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online from April of this year through December.

While there have not been any reports of injuries so far, consumers are being urges to stop using the toy immediately. Anyone with the colorful hearts teddy bear should return the product to any Build-A-Bear workshop and they will receive a coupon for any available stuffed toy from the store.

This has been a rough year for the toy retailer because this is the third recall they have issued in 2011. There was also an announcement made on December 12 that Build-A-Bear was to pay a $600,000 penalty for failing to immediately report a defect associated with its toy bear beach chair. The company recalled 260,000 of these chairs in May 2009. The chair product did cause some injuries and has a risk to pinch, lacerate, or amputate a child’s fingertip if it becomes caught where the chair folds.

The CPSC reported that manufacturers, retailers, and distributors are required by law to report any defect within 24 hours of finding reasonable information to support that there is a hazard.

St. Louis Today spoke with Ed Mierzwinski, consumer advocate for U.S. Public Interest Research Groups about the sting of Build-A-Bear recalls. He expressed that he was glad they issued the recall and that eyes falling off dolls and stuffed animals is a well-known problem, but he still was worried about the spiral this company is in.

“This company—its recent time line—gives me some concern that they really need to review their management and their risk analysis to make sure they are in compliance with the law to protect children,” he said.

The other recalls this year include a pink inner tube that poses a suffocation risk and a lapel pin that contained high levels of lead in the paint. For additional information on this recall, call (866) 236-5683, visit their website at, or email them at [email protected]

6 Notorious Drug Recalls of the 2000s

By Richard Console on December 28, 2011 - Comments off

Drug recalls are scary. It can be hard to understand how a drug was approved by the Food and Drug Administration and then later be found to be dangerous, but over time some medications show their true dangers that were not originally seen or anticipated. All recalls are reported on the FDA website, and everyone should stay diligent with checking for health alerts and recalls. Each year about 106,000 deaths are caused by prescription drugs each year.

When pharmaceuticals are found to be defective, dangerous, or contaminated they could cause harms more serious than the ailment they were meant to treat. There are many recalls issued each year, but these notorious drug recalls are ones that will go down in infamy.

1. Darvon, Darvocet (Propoxyphene)
Manufacturer: Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Darvocet), Eli Lilly and Company (Darvon), and others
Recalled: November 2010
Propoxyphene is an opioid that was used to treat mild to moderate pain, which was taken off the market in November 2010. Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals, which manufactured the brand version of the medication, decided to voluntarily remove the medication from the market after it was learned that the medication caused serious and fatal heart rhythm abnormalities. The FDA also informed companies that produced generic medications containing propoxyphene of the risks and asked that they too remove their products from the market after Xanodyne’s decision. The drug was banned in the UK and Europe before it was in the United States.

2. Vioxx
Manufacturer: Merck & Company Inc.
Recalled: September 2004.
Vioxx was an arthritis and acute pain medication. It was recalled in 2004 because serious concerns arose during a clinical trial where they were testing its effectiveness for helping with colon polyps. It was discovered that this medication significantly raised the risk of heart attack and stroke. The drug was linked to 27,000 heart attacks and cardiac-related deaths. The BBC reported that as of November 2007, the company had already paid out $4,850,000,000 to settle lawsuits brought up because of Vioxx.

3. Bextra
Manufacturer: G.D. Searle & Company, now part of Pfizer
Recalled: 2005.
Very similar to Vioxx, Bextra was used as an anti-inflammatory and painkiller. It was removed for the same reason as Vioxx, a link to increased risk of heart-attack and stroke. The infamy surrounding this recall came about when it unveiled a larger problem—the drug was being promoted for uses it was not approved for. The New York Times reported that the company settled with 33 states who were investigating Pfizer for $60,000,000.The NYT also reported that in 2008, Pfizer set aside $894,000,000 in order to settle the many personal injury lawsuits brought up against the company.

4. Lipobay, Baycol
Manufacturer: Bayer
Recalled: August 2001.
Lipobay (also known as Baycol and Cerivastatin) was a medication that treated high cholesterol. It was recalled because it was linked with a severe muscle disorder known as rhabdomoyolysis. This disorder causes the kidneys to clog with protein from dying muscle tissue, which can cause kidney failure and death. The New York Times reported in 2003 that the medication was linked to more than 100 deaths. The article also explained that the recall and lawsuits over Baycol had cost them $150,000,000—and that was when there were still more than 8,000 lawsuits pending against Bayer.

5. Able Laboratories generic prescription drugs
Recalled: May 2005.
Able Laboratories was a company that manufactured generic prescription drugs. In 2005 the FDA notified consumers and healthcare professionals that there was a nationwide recall issued. There were serious apprehensions about the drugs not being produced according to quality assurance standards. The drugs were found to either be too potent or not potent enough. The massive recall seriously impacted Able Laboratories and was the reason for their suspension of production.

6. Tylenol
Manufacturer: McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson
Recalled: January 2010, April 2010, June 2010, October 2010.
Many have a hard time forgetting the notorious Tylenol contaminations in the 80s, but various forms of Tylenol have been recalled in recent years. The April 2010 recall was issued when fears of a Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) contamination arose. This recall affected Children’s and Infant’s Liquid products. B. cepacia is known to be resistant to antibiotics; the bacteria was really only a threat to those with weakened immune systems. The January 2010 recall was issued when various Tylenol products were found to have trace amounts of a chemical that is applied to wood pallets. They smelt moldy and caused various gastrointestinal problems—though they reported none were severe. The June 2010 recall was an expansion of the January recall adding several more products that had been contaminated. Then in October 2010 they had to issue another recall because of a moldy and musty smell caused by a chemical, 2, 4, 6-tribromoanisole.

While this is not a comprehensive list of the drug recalls issued in the 2000s, they are some of the largest. In the end, medications should help you, not harm you, and if you are injured by a dangerous or defective pharmaceutical you should contact a skilled attorney.

If you or someone you love has been injured or has died because of the consumption of a dangerous medication you deserve compensation.
