29K defective baby strollers with injury risks recalled in US

A company is recalling an estimated 29,400 baby strollers due to concerns they could cause personal injuries to adults and babies, a report of the CPSC stated on December 20.

According to reports, at least five models of “Qbit strollers” have a folding mechanism component that could cause pinch or laceration injuries to adults. The folding mechanism could also fail during use, which poses injury risks to babies. The importer, Aria Child Inc., and the CPSC have been informed of several incidents of failing Qbit strollers that resulted in various injuries to adults and babies. Some of the injuries were reportedly serious and required stitches. People who might have the faulty strollers were told not to use the product and to get in touch with Aria for a product replacement.

Millions of faulty dehumidifiers linked to property damages recalled

Approximately 3.4 million dehumidifier units in the U.S. are under recall due to the possibility that they could catch fire and result in property damage. The units were linked to $4.8 million worth of property damages, a November 2 article of cpsc.gov reported.

According to the recall, at least eight sizes of Midea dehumidifiers in 52 different brand names are at high risk of emitting too much heat and catching fire. Midea has not received any complaints of injuries involving the defective products. However, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission confirmed the recalled dehumidifiers were the cause of property damages amounting to roughly $4.8 million in the 38 cases of fire and smoke they received. Consumers are highly advised to closely inspect their products to determine if it is part of the recall. Midea is expected to address the problem through product replacement or refund.
