Reports are surfacing regarding the company, ‘Kids II’, having submitted to the public a recall of its toy, ‘Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper’. Though this recall is apparently voluntary to those more than four hundred thousand purchasers of the toy, the reason for the recall is nonetheless alarming.
The product has reportedly had issues with a part of the jumper that is a sun-shaped piece that can forcefully snap back and cause significant injury to the young child. There have been submissions to the company of reported injuries to infants including a fractured skull, cuts and bruising. Additionally, an adult reported receiving an injury to their mouth, when the same defective piece on the jumper flung back at their face and chipped a tooth as a result.
Being that this product is geared towards infants, only months old, the importance of spreading this information is extremely crucial. The company has provided the jumper’s model number for those who believe that they may have purchased this item; model number 90564. For those parents concerned with the idea that they may have one of these defective products, you can find this model number on the tag that is located under the seat of the jumper.
The specific defective jumpers that are being recalled are ones that were made prior to November of 2011. According to Kids II, the inventory of this baby jumper that is currently on stores’ shelves is not a part of this recall. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) urges owners of this faulty and defective product to reframe from further use of the jumper, and to contact the company to have the item fitted with a properly working toy.
Kids II can be contacted at (877) 325-7056 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST Monday through Friday or you can visit their site at www.kidsii.com and then click on the Recall link at the bottom of the page for more information.
WHEN PRODUCTS FAIL, COMPANIES NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR INJURIES
Products that are created by a manufacturer defectively cause that manufacturer to be responsible for any foreseeable injuries that come from that defective product. There are necessary safety standards that must be met prior to allowing a product to be sold to the general public. Though this fact remains true with every product sold in the US, a company’s urge to get products on store shelves as quickly as possible sometimes creates situations where certain problems are overlooked.
When a person is injured by a defective product, a manufacturer can be held liable for the injury. Personal Injury claims, under product liability law, are claims that involve a person seeking compensation for the injuries they, or someone they love, sustained due to a defective product. Examples of products that have proven to be defective at times, and have caused injuries, include but are not limited to:
• Children’s Car Seats • Baby Cribs • Toys / Board Games / Sporting Goods • Faulty Power Tools • Defectives Auto Parts • Faulty Home Appliances
