There have been several consumer recalls over the past couple of days that may affect Deal Seeking Mom readers. Please refer to the links included in each section for more details about the specific recalls:
Children’s Pain & Fever Concentrated Drops
Altaire Pharmaceuticals, Inc., of Aquebogue, N.Y, today, announced a voluntary recall of Children’s Pain & Fever Concentrated Drops because it contains acetaminophen which calls for child-resistant packaging as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. Although the original bottle has child-resistant packaging, a separate dropper unit provided for dispensing the drug to children does not. When in use, a child can access the medicine, posing serious health problems or death if more than the recommended dosage is consumed. For a complete list of affected lot numbers, go here. The recalled drops were sold at old at drug stores, grocery stores and other retailers nationwide between January 2009 and June 2011 for about $4.
Consumers should immediately store this product with the child-resistant closure in place and keep it out of the reach of children. To arrange for a free replacement dropper, contact Altaire Pharmaceuticals at (800) 258-2471 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. For additional information, contact Rugby Laboratories at (800) 645-2158 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
Britax Child Safety Inc., of Charlotte, N.C. announced a voluntary recall of B-Nimble Strollers because an audible click heard when the brake pedal is pressed can give a false impression that the brake is fully engaged when it is not. When the brake is not engaged, the stroller can move unexpectedly posing a risk of injury to the child occupant. This recall involves B-Nimble umbrella strollers manufactured on or after August 1, 2010. Strollers included in the recall have model numbers U311771, U311773, U311775 and U311780. The date of manufacture labels and model numbers can be found on the lower frame/tube on either the left or the right side. The strollers were sold in a variety of colors including black and silver, Cowmooflage (black and white), green and red. The affected strollers were sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online retailers between September 2010 and June 2011 for about $200.
Consumers should immediately stop using their strollers and contact Britax for information and to request an improved replacement stroller. Consumers who resume use of their strollers while awaiting the replacement should always ensure that the brake is fully engaged. For additional information, contact Britax toll-free at (888) 427-4829 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and, or visit the firm’s website.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
