Product Recalls: Dehumidifiers, LED Lanterns, Baby Bath Seats, Jumpers and Cribs!

Here's a collected set of what I'd consider important product recalls from Sears, REI sold items, Amazon sold products and the like.

If anything here seems critical to you, check out www.cpsc.gov and search for the product names noted here.

As is the case with any recall, if you have a recalled product, stop using it and determine what your next course of action is via the recall notice.

Sears Reannounced their recall of Kenmore Dehumidifiers Due to Additional Reports of Fires.  The dehumidifiers can overheat, smoke, melt and catch on fire, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

Industrial Revolution Recalls LED Lanterns Due to Fire Hazard; Sold Exclusively at REI Stores. Name of Product: UCO Arka LED lanterns  Hazard: The lantern's wall charger plug can fail during normal use, posing a fire hazard.

Thermobaby Bath Seats Recalled by SCS Direct Due to Drowning Hazard; Sold Exclusively at Amazon.com  Name of Product: Thermobaby Aquababy Bath Ring Seats.  Hazard: The bath seats fail to meet federal safety standards, including the requirement for stability. Specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies.

Kids II Recalls Baby Einstein Activity Jumpers Due to Impact Hazard; Sun Toy Can Snap Backward.  Name of product: Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers, Hazard: The "sun" toy attachment on the activity jumper can rebound with force and injure the infant, posing an impact hazard.

Nan Far Woodworking Recalls Rockland Furniture Round Cribs Due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards; Sold Exclusively at jcpenney.  Name of product: Rockland Furniture round cribs.  Hazard: The crib's drop-side rails can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail. When this happens, the drop-side rail can fall out of position and create a space where an infant or toddler can become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. In addition, drop-side related incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.
