Safe Kids: Preventing Injuries at home, at play and on the way.

Product Recalls for November 2012

 Safe Kids is committed to keeping you informed about recalls of kids’ oriented products.  While it is important to keep aware of all recalls, Safe Kids urges you to pay particular attention to ones in red, as they are associated with one or more deaths. (There is a death associated with the recall of PeaPod Travel Tents in this report.) We also include important news about products and consumer concerns:
