Child safety is the number one priority for all parents. They are dependent on products that have been adequately tested and approved for use. When manufacturers fail to meet these requirements, they must be held responsible for damages. Graco, a popular baby product company, recently had almost five million of its baby strollers recalled due to the threat they pose to infants.
This recall affects 11 models of Graco strollers from over the past decade. An investigation by ABC News has revealed that there have been at least 11 cases of finger injuries, including fingertip amputations and lacerations, reported to Graco so far. Millions of families remain in danger due to the availability of these strollers.
It is illegal to sell recalled products. However, baby merchandise, such as these defective strollers, are easily obtainable for resale. Graco has informed stroller owners to contact the company for a free repair kit, but where does that leave families in the meantime? They have a product unsafe for use and in some cases, they may not even be aware of the risks.
Federal law does not require a minimum effort for manufacturers on money spent or actions taken to alert the public about safety recalls. Too often this results in the majority of the population being uninformed of malfunctioning products they have purchased either for themselves or for others.
