Aveeno Baby Lotion Recall


Aveeno has just voluntarily recalled their Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort lotion due to high levels of bacteria in the product (yuck!) The products were sold in AL, AR, FL, GA, KS, LA, MS, TN, and TX and the bacteria found is considered to not be hazardous to baby's health.

While not so hazardous, its still frustrating that these baby product contamination recalls seem to crop up so often. But I'm glad they do catch them and nip them in the bud--I'm not quite prepared to start making my own baby soaps and lotions!

Dorel Car Seat Recall

Geeze, it seems like I'm posting a product recall every other day!

This latest recall includes several models of Dorel car seats sold under the Safety 1st, Disney, Cosco, and Eddie Bauer labels Jan 08 through April 09. When used as a carrier, the handle may fall off posing a risk of dropping your baby.

Check out the CPSC website for the full recall notice and info about how to receive your repair kit. Note: you can still use the carrier as a car seat when it is properly installed in your car. Just don't attempt to carry baby in it!

Blinds Recall

This is one major recall! Today, the CPSC announced a recall of millions of roman shades and roll up blinds whose cords pose a strangulation risk. Check out the CPSC's recall notice .

Or better yet, you may want to do away with this style of shade all together. Better safe than sorry, mamas!

Product Recall: Amby Baby Motion Beds


The CPSC has issued a due to an infant suffocation risk. This is scary because I almost registered for one of these, but didn't because my husband was nervous about safety! The full recall notice is .

Owners should stop using the bed and contact Amby at for a free repair kit--what that kit will be, who knows. The repair kits won't be available until January 2010, though, so it looks like owners will need to find a new sleeping arrangement for their little ones in the meanwhile.

Storkcraft Crib Recall

Yesterday Storkccaft, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commision, issued a recall of more the 2.1 million drop-side cribs with plastic trigger and one-hand-system drop-side hardware, some which were produced under the Fisher Price logo. It seems like we have been hearing for years now about the dangers of these cribs (entrapment or suffocation caused by worn out, loose and otherwise faulty drop-sides) so I'm glad to hear that Storkcraft is doing something about it.

The official CPSC recall statement with details on affected cribs is available .

So, what do you do if your crib is one that was included in the recall? Its actually pretty easy: contact Storkcraft for a repair kit at 877-274-0277 or . You do not need a receipt, just the model number from your crib.

Of course, there is high traffic on the Storkcraft website and phone line, so in the meanwhile make sure that all of the hardware on your crib is working properly and that pieces are not loose, improperly installed, or missing. You may even just want to play it safe in the future by looking into getting a stationary-sided crib. My thoughts: why play with fire?

Product Recall: ALL Maclaren Strollers

From the website:

Breaking news: Maclaren plans to recall 1 million strollers---all its production between 1999 and 2009---after receiving 12 reports of hinges on the stroller that amputated children's fingertips. The company will send out a cover for the hinges to all owners.

The CPSC and Maclaren will issue a press release in the recall this Tuesday; Maclaren began notifying its dealers of the recall in the past couple of days.

Here is the take-36棋牌 message until the recall is official:

• Stop using all Maclaren strollers right now---yes, every model made since 1999.

• When the recall goes public on Tuesday, order a hinge cover from Maclaren's web site or phone line. (Note: the web site is not live yet as of this writing).

• Wait until you install the hinge cover before using the stroller again.

We will blogging updates on this recall as they develop this week. Click here to read updates:



Stay tuned,
