Evenflow® Tops CPSC Product Recall List
September 28, 2010 – According to a recent analysis conducted by the Dayton Daily News, Evenflo Co. Inc. has issued more product recalls than any other manufacturer regulated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Recalls involved over two million “cribs, high chairs, activity centers, wooden gates, and telephone toys” and followed 187 injuries, said the Dayton Daily News. To date, the company has recalled 2,078,660 products linked to nearly 200 injuries.
Nursery product recalls
Nursery product recalls made history last year and for the first time, children’s clothing recalls also reached an unexpected high, due, in part, to strangulation hazards present in clothing with drawstrings. Also, recalls in 2009 totaled an unbelievable 21.1 million units, of which, six recalls involved one million units or more. These products together caused at least 198 injuries and nine deaths.
In 2009, nursery products and clothing surpassed toys with the most recalls, representing 28 and 27 percent of children’s product recalls, respectively; products were recalled mainly due to entrapment, fall, and choking hazards, while clothing was recalled for strangulation hazards with drawstrings and choking hazards from small detachable parts. Evenflo has been cited as being one of the manufacturers that had multiple, separate recalls, with its Envision High Chairs responsible for 54 injuries before a recall was finally implemented.
