PT Domusindo Perdana Drop-Side Crib Recall [US]

US/Washington: PT Domusindo Perdana recalls some Drop-Side Cribs due to entrapment, suffocation hazards. CPSC: http://ht.ly/jrHaq 

Direct lnk: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/PT-Domusindo-Perdana-Recalls-Drop-Side-Cribs/

Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Cribs’ drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail. If this occurs, it may cause part of the drop side to fall out of proper safe position, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped. In turn, this entrapment can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the recalled Crib, causing serious injury. The CPSC says that Drop-Side Crib incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly of the product and happen over time due to age-related wear and tear.

Please note: the CPSC reports these recalled Drop-Side Cribs were sold exclusively at JC Penney Stores.

About Milk Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

Direct link: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/West-Music-Recalls-Egg-Shaker-Toy-Instruments/

Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the Egg-Shaker Toy Instruments are plastic, egg-shaped instruments sold in five colors: yellow, green, blue, red and purple.

Curaprox Pacifier Recall [Australia]

Australia/Canberra: Curaden Swiss recalls some Curaprox Pacifiers due to child choking hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/jpKzF

Direct: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1046430

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the recalled Pacifiers do not comply with the requirements of Australia’s Consumer Protection Notice No.4 2006. Specifically, the Pacifier does not have a ring or handle, the dummies are packaged with a strap (in error) and the packaging is not marked with the following statement as required by law:

WARNING
DO NOT TIE SOOTHER AROUND BABY’S NECK
AS IT PRESENTS A STRANGULATION DANGER.

In addition, ACCC says the lack of a ring or handle on the Pacifier may pose a choking hazard to the child: a parent or guardian may not realise the danger posed by attaching a soother to the baby’s neck.

Never wrap a Pacifier tether or cord around the neck of a child or attach a Pacifier using a tether or cord near the neck of a child due to choking and/or death hazards!
