Numerous recalls have been issued this week that involve products you or your children may be using.
We start with a toy doll that could be dangerous for kids. Thousands of "Feels Real Baby Dolls" are being recalled. The concern is, the doll's fingers and toes can detach and can cause young children to choke. The dolls were sold online from May of 2011 through January of this year. They are dressed in diapers with a colored hearts, stars and swirl print. Two labels are sewn inside the back of the diaper.
"Lakeshore" is written on the larger label. If your child has this doll, you are advised to immediately take it away and contact the company at (800) 428-4414 or www.lakeshorelearning.com for a free replacement.
A massive recall has been issued for adjustable mattress bases made by Leggett and Platt.
The motorized bed frames are controlled by handheld remotes which allow the head and foot of the mattress to be moved up and down. However, the electrical components in the motor control board can overheat - and can catch on fire. There have been close to 30 complaints of overheating, none have resulted in injuries. The product was sold at mattress retailers nationwide. Consumers should immediately unplug the power cord and stop using the power functions of the bed.
Contact Leggett at (855) 853-3539 to arrange a free in-home repair of the product or a free modification kit.
