Baby cribs among latest defective household products recalled

West Virginia residents may be particularly interested in a recent recall if they have infants in their homes. Baby's Dream Inc. has recently recalled close to 5,000 pieces of its furniture, including baby cribs, bookcases, nightstands, hutches and chests. Individuals who have one of these defective household products or knows someone who does will want to read further.

Apparently, the cause for concern is due to high levels of lead in the paint. Lead poisoning can occur if the lead paint is ingested. If ingested, it could lead to delayed development in babies and children, as well as nervous system damage in individuals of all ages.

The recalled pieces of furniture were supposedly sold in a vintage grey finish. The affected products were sold in the Brice, Braxton, Everything Nice, Heritage and Legendary collections. They were sold between March 2014 and 2015 online and at various brick-and-mortar furniture stores.  

Luckily, at this time, there have been no reports of lead ingestion, health problems or injuries. However, this does not mean that there will not be, as the products have been sold for an entire year and are in thousands of individuals' homes throughout the country. For those who have an affected piece of furniture, Baby's Dream is offering an exchange and can be contacted during office hours.

First and foremost, West Virginia residents who believe they have ingested lead should seek medical attention immediately. The manufacturer has a legal responsibility to ensure that the products it is building and selling to consumers are safe for use and will not result in unnecessary harm. In the event that one has been exposed to lead from defective household products, it may be possible to pursue a legal claim that will hopefully hold the manufacturer of the lead-tainted product responsible for its harmful actions.
