The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall for about 9,500 “metoo” clip-on baby chairs because of potential falling hazards. According to a FOX 5 news report, the chairs made by phil&teds USA Inc., have clamps that can detach and cause the chair and the infant to fall. There is also an amputation hazard if the child’s fingers get caught in the defective clamp. At the time of the report, five children had been injured as a result of these defects. Those who own these chairs are asked to request a free repair kit from the manufacturer.

A product may be recalled if it has a design flaw or manufacturing defect. In some cases, a product can also be recalled for defective marketing, which is when a product does not do what it is supposed to do or when a manufacturer fails to notify the consumer of a potential hazard. Defective design is when a product is inherently dangerous because of the way in which it was designed. Defective manufacturing is when a sample of the product is defective because of mistakes made during the assembly or manufacturing of the product.

Product manufacturers have a legal obligation to provide reasonably safe products. When they fail to do so, they may be held liable, should any injuries be suffered by consumers. Victims who have been injured due to a defective product may file product liability claims to pursue losses such as medical bills, past and future suffering, and lost wages.
