“In One Week 3 Different Products Recalled”

A Vermont company has announced a recall of more than 200,000 Roman shades and roll-up blinds due to the potential for strangulation. Green Mountain Vista Inc. announced the recall this week after it was discovered that small children’s heads could become stuck in the blinds or wrapped up in the cord. No injuries have yet been reported, the company said.
More than 11,000 drop-side cribs have been recalled after two children were injured due to hardware failures. Alexander Designs Ltd. announced the recall this week, reporting that there is a risk of the drop-side of the crib detaching and falling unexpectedly. When this occurs, a gap is created between the side of the crib and the mattress, posing a suffocation risk for infants.
A California sporting goods company has announced a recall 160,000 sporting trampolines over the risk of the structures breaking. Bravo Sports announced the recall in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission last week, saying “the trampolines, if improperly assembled, can result in weak support, posing the risk of the top rails or legs bending or breaking during normal use.” The company has received 247 reports of problems with the trampoline railings.
