The end of January not only brought the first month of 2013 to a close but also meant numerous recalls being announced by the CPSC.
Triaminic and Theraflu products were recalled due their lack of child resistant packaging.
These child-resistant caps can fail to function properly and enable the cap to be removed by a child with the tamper-evident seal in place, posing a risk of unintentional ingestion and poisoning.
Megafood Daily One Supplements manufactured by FoodState also was recalled due to lack of child resistant packaging.
The packaging is not child-resistant as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
Nanospheres Magnetic Desk Toys made by Kringles Toys and Gifts, and Magnet Balls Manipulative Magnet Sets made by SCS Direct and both sold exclusively by Amazon.com, was recalled due to the hazard magnet indigestion poses for children. If two or more magnets are ingested they can link together causing severe damage or perforation to the intestines.
World Imports issued a recall to their bunks beds due to a safety violation.
The openings between the metal rails of the end structures are greater than allowed in the standard and pose a risk of entrapment or asphyxiation hazard.
The recall of the beds extended to approximately 8,600 units.
