Dangerous Products You May Have in Your Home

By Grant Law Office on August 18, 2014

You may have dangerous products in your home right now that have been recalled because of the injuries and illnesses they may have caused. There are hundreds of products recalled every year and a new report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) shows that less that 5 percent of recalled products are returned or repaired. This means that the vast majority of consumers who have purchased hazardous products that have been recalled either don’t bother to act or are not aware that they are in danger.

The director of the advocacy group Kids in Danger has stated that most recalled products remain in consumer homes. A spokesperson with recommends consumers research their products on before selling them online or in a yard sale. It is especially important if the products you regularly use with your children have been recalled.

According to a recent news report in, here are seven popular but dangerous products that you may have in your home right now:

  • The Nap Nanny: This is a reclined infant seat that has been connected to at least six deaths.
  • Gree Electric dehumidifiers: Over 2.5 million dehumidifiers made in China were recalled in the year 2013 after about 500 incidents of overheating were reported including 100 fires.
  • Maclaren strollers: There have been numerous reports of fingertips being severed by exposed hinges on these defective strollers. About a million Maclaren strollers were included in the recall.
  • Lane cedar chests: Lane recalled 12 million chests that were made between the years 1912 and 1987. The old models did not have special locks on them, so children could get trapped inside and suffocate.
  • Simplicity bassinets and cribs: These cribs were poorly assembled and exposed newborns to risks of strangulation and suffocation.
  • Blair chenille robes: According to the CPSC, these highly flammable robes have been connected to the deaths of at least nine women.
  • Buckyballs: This product was recalled after dozens of kids required medical treatment after swallowing the little magnetic balls. Instead of obeying the recall right away, the manufacturer of Buckyballs just started marketing it to adults instead of children.

If you or a loved one is injured by a dangerous or defective product, please contact an experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer who can help you better understand your legal rights and options.
