Recall Wednesday: Mattress Sets, Hooded Jacket, SCAN Stove, Step2® Basic Rhythms Drums™ & Coby DVD/CD/MP3
Below are the CPSC recalls that I have received since Wednesday, April 21, 2010. A few hooded sweatshirts, a portable DVD and a Step2 play drum are certainly kid items that you may find in your home.
As a reminder:
In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines(pdf) (which were incorporated into an industry voluntary standard in 1997) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled in the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets or sweatshirts.
Be sure to check old hand-me-downs for this!
You can find even more detailed information on all recalled products mentioned below on CPSC.gov. All information below comes directly from the CPSC website.
