This recall was made voluntarily by the company, under the CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Expedited recalls are initiated by companies that agree to work with the CPSC to promptly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
About the US CPSC
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from the unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from incidents involving consumer products cost the nation more than $1 trillion a year. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits anyone from selling products subject to a recall ordered by the Commission or a voluntary recall conducted in consultation with the CPSC.
