In a news statement, Guidecraft Inc, in cooperation with and in compliance with the rules and guidelines of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, announced the voluntary safety recall for the 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theatre Toys due to reports that the toys can unexpectedly tip over during play. Roughly 1,800 units that were available through various catalogs and online from July 2010 through April 2011 are being affected by this recall. Guidecraft has received two reports of tip-over incidents, one of which included a child receiving minor contusions and abrasions. Consumers should take the recalled products away from children immediately and contact the company to receive a full refund or a replacement product.
As a Lancaster personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen this type of safety recall several times over the course of my career and I understand the types of injuries that are possible through their use. Manufacturers do a lot to make sure that their products are safe for their consumers. Unfortunately, even under the most watchful eye, mistakes can be made. If you or your child has suffered an injury through the normal use of a defective or poorly designed product, it may be in your best interests to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area to discuss your rights as a consumer and the possible legal options that may be at your disposal.Tweet
