Serious injury risks prompt product recalls

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Falling chandeliers, high chairs that collapse, and toys that can cause kids to choke are all being recalled this week for those very reasons.

MIMA 3-in-1 chairs are being recalled because the seat can loosen and dislodge, allowing the seat and the child sitting in it to fall. The chair can also fall on to a child crawling underneath it, posing an impact hazard.

The company has received 14 reports of the seat loosening. Customers should stop using the high chair and contact MIMA for a free replacement upper chair section or a full refund.

Airplane and butterfly push toys are being recalled by LS Import for a choking risk. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the wheels of the airplane and the balls at the tip of the butterfly’s antenna can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Consumers should take the toys away from their children immediately and contact the company for a full refund.

Sea Gull Lighting is also recalling chandeliers this week because the screw collar that holds the chandelier to the ceiling mount can break, causing it to fall and injure anyone nearby. More than 9,000 have been recalled since the company received four reports of this happening, but fortunately there were no injuries.

Consumers should contact the company to receive free replacement hardware and instructions on being reimbursed for the full cost of the installation.
