Defective products for kids include ride-on toys

The recent recalls of multiple items may negatively impact consumers in West Virginia, particularly those with young children. Ride-on toys that are modeled after airplanes are among the children's items that have been found to be defective. Other defective products include child bicycle trailers and even hoodies and mugs.

The ride-on toy is a Peanuts Flying Ace product that was sold between July 2015 and August 2015 at Target. These toys were designed for kids between the ages of 12 months to 2 years old. Officials said these items have been recalled because a toy's hubcaps may become detached from the axle of the wheel; this poses a choking hazard to children. Nearly 11,000 of the ride-on toys have been sold. No injuries have been reported.

Children may also be affected by a Burley Design child bike trailer. Seven models of these types of trailers, made between 2009 and 2015, have been recalled. According to the company, people with trailers that have tow bars may see the tow bar receivers separate from the bars, therefore posing a bike crash hazard. So far, there have been 35 reports of these incidents, with two of them leading to cuts to a child.

Consumers understandably trust product manufacturers to produce items that have been tested and confirmed to be safe for them to use. Not all products that make it to store shelves, however, are truly safe. People who suffer injuries as a result of defective products in West Virginia have the right to explore all of their legal options in order to correct any wrongs that have been done.
