Recalls to take note of... Doors, Eddie Bauer, Stools, Generators

When I slap my product recall pieces together, I try to get pretty fancy... but today, I'm just going to get to the point.  If you are impacted, or think you are... there are links to check out.

Today's concerns include some bifold doors, rocking wood bassinets, step stools, portable generators, gas grills, and some toddler chairs.

So here goes:

JELD-WEN and Reliabilt Interior Bifold Doors: "The lower pivot pin can break causing the door to disengage from the overhead track, posing an impact hazard."

Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets: "The bottom locking mechanism can fail to lock properly allowing the bassinet to tip to one side and cause infants to roll to the side of the bassinet. This poses a suffocation hazard to infants."

Easy Reach Step Stools Due to Fall Hazard; Sold exclusively at The Home Depot:  "The top step/standing platform can break, posing a fall hazard to consumers."

Portable Generators Recalled by Champion Power Equipment:  "Fuel can leak from the generator's carburetor, posing a fire hazard."

Master Forge Gas Grills Sold at Lowe's Stores:   "If improperly installed, the hose connecting the gas tank and regulator to the burner control can touch the burner box and cause the hose to melt and rupture when the grill is lit. This poses a fire and burn hazard."

Children's Upholstered Toddler chairs from Trend Lab:  "staples in the binding on the back of the chair may come loose, posing a laceration or choking hazard if swallowed."  They will have date codes TL1007C through TL0812C.
