Plastic dishes, night lights are dangerous products

A couple of product recalls recently issued may affect parents in West Virginia. The first recall involves Playtex bowls and plates for children. The dangerous products involved in the second recall are nightlights from Skip Hop.

Approximately 3.6 million of the children's dishes have been recalled. The plates feature various designs, such as superheroes, princesses, giraffes, construction scenes and cars. Officials said the plastic that lies on top of the graphics may bubble or peel, potentially causing children to choke. So far, over 370 instances of peeling and bubbling have been reported, with four children having already choked on the plastic. The defective items were sold at stores such as Walmart, Target and Babies "R" Us between Oct. 2009 and Oct. 2017.

Around 130,000 Moonlight & Melodies elephant and owl nightlight soothers have been recalled. These night lights come with wall power adapters that may break, thus potentially causing electrical shock accidents. The lights were sold online as well as at stores such as Target, Buy Buy Baby and Babies "R" Us from July 2016 to Aug. 2017.

Dangerous products can cause serious injuries that are expensive to treat. These injures may also take a mental toll on those suffering them, causing emotional distress. However, those who suffer such injuries in West Virginia may have grounds to file product liability claims against the companies that have made these products, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages that may help to address medical costs as well as pain and suffering and other financial losses.
