Many children each year are injured or killed due to defective products such as toys, high chairs, cribs, crib liners, swings, playground equipment, medicines and other types of products used in everyday life.
Many of the multi- national corporations that manufacture such products seek to cut costs at the expense of safety and might consider such incidents to be statistically acceptable in their cost risk analysis. Since children are sacred to us, injuries caused by the negligence of corporations are never statistically acceptable. The number of recalls each year, involving children’s products, are especially disturbing.
The recent banning of drop side cribs emphasizes just how dangerous a defective product can be. Recent important children's product recalls from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission include:
