Skip Hop is recalling about 3,500 crib mobiles because the strap attaching the product to the crib rail can break, posing an injury hazard if the product falls on the infant in the crib. The recall involves the Skip Hop Moonlight & Melodies projection crib mobiles. The mobile has a white plastic arm that attaches to the side of the crib with four blinking, glowing leaves with stuffed animal attachments. Affected units were sold at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and other independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and SkipHop.com from July 2015 to November 2015 for about $65. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mobiles and contact the firm for instructions on receiving a $75 coupon toward the purchase of a new Skip Hop product.
Ace Bayou is reannouncing the recall of about 2.2 million bean bag chairs because the zippers on the chairs can be opened by children who can then crawl inside, get trapped and suffocate or choke on the chair’s foam beads. Only 790 consumers have responded to the recall. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is extremely concerned that these recalled bean bag chairs are continuing to be used by children. Two children have died after suffocating on the chair’s foam beads. Affected units were sold at Bergner’s, Big Lots, Bon-Ton, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Meijer, Pamida, School Specialty, Wayfair, Walmart and Younkers stores and online at Amazon.com, Meijer.com, Walmart.com and other websites from 1995 to 2013 for between $30 and $100. To prevent another death, consumers should check the outside zipper on their bean bag chair to ensure that it has a metal staple to disable the outer zipper. If it does not have a metal staple, take the recalled bean bag chair away from children immediately and contact Ace Bayou for the free repair kit to permanently disable the zipper.
