In 2010, the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s report on hazardous products notes these statistics related to child nursery equipment and supplies:
No parent wants to imagine that their child might be exposed to dangers, especially in what should be the safety of their own home. However, the reality is that vulnerable infants are put at risk when innocently using products designed especially for them. The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s 2010 report confirms 68 deaths per year in the U.S. that are associated with the use of child nursery equipment and supplies, alone. Products in that category include cribs, playpens, strollers, carriages, high chairs and other items necessary to provide care for babies. If your infant has been hurt or lost his or her life because of a defective product, you deserve justice for your youngster.

Consumer Product Safety Commission product recalls between 2007 and 2009 included some 95 million products for children. In 2011, recalls have been issued for such infant products as:
- Jogging strollers
- Teething rings
When infants are exposed to defective products, serious injuries or loss of life can be the tragic result. Problem cribs may pose dangers that lead to entrapment, strangulation, suffocation or falls. Strollers have been recalled because of potential brake failures, construction that can pose risk of strangulation, choking, falls, and fingertip amputation. Sleep product recalls have noted hazards due to choking, abrasions, suffocation and more. It’s easy to see how rapidly the risks to your infant can multiply as more and more products are added to recall and warning lists.
