As parents, we try to do what’s best for our kids — feed them healthy foods, provide them with a good education, give them appropriate toys and clothes, and keep them safe — it’s just part of the job of being a parent. Unfortunately, despite our best intentions, the worst can occasionally happen and the things we purchase for our little ones can harm them.
Thankfully, in the U.S. we have an organization that watches out for dangerous product malfunctions and failures to meet safety requirements, the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CPSC continuously adds to a list of hundreds and hundreds of items that have been recalled for safety concerns — everything from malfunctioning boat motors to kids’ swimsuits that don’t meet requirements.
Though manufacturers do test products for safety, mistakes do happen, and things fall through the cracks or get missed entirely. The CPSC provides a regularly updated list of recalled products, but it can be difficult to wade through to find the recalls that specifically target child and baby products, which is why SheKnows is providing our readers with a regularly updated list of baby and child product recalls.
Check back because this list will be updated regularly when new recalls are posted. For info on last year’s recalls, check out our 2020 recalls list.
