With just a few days to go until we enter a new month, we thought that this would be the ideal time to look over the March 2011 Product Recalls, which as we can see from CPSC is very extensive. We can already see that there have been 45 recalls so far, and we still have a few more days left in the month.
So let us take a look at a few of what we believe were the worst in the product recalls for March 2011. The first and most worrying was the recall of the drop-side crib, which had an issue with the “Safety Peg”. It was reported that a second death of an infant sparked-off this latest recall of 985,000 units on March 22nd. More details on this can be found here.
The second recall that we believe to be bad for March was the LasKo Box Fans, with 4.8 million units being recalled due to a fire risk. The reason for the recall was because the fan had an electrical issue for those units sold from June 2002 to December 2005. More details from the CPSC website.
There were also two separate recalls for Baja dirt bikes and Suzuki ATVs. Both were due to a risk of fire, so had to be recalled March 9 and 10 respectively. For a full list of product for March 2011 visit the CPSC website.
