Million Dollar Baby dressers recalled

The dresser can tip over, posing the risk of entrapment of a child

PhotoBexco Enterprises, dba Million Dollar Baby of Montebello, CA, is recalling 18,000 children’s four-drawer dressers. When a young child climbs up on open dresser drawers, the dresser becomes unstable and poses the risk of tip over and entrapment.

There have been two reports of deaths associated with these dressers. An 11-month-old boy from Tulsa, OK, and a 20-month-old girl from Camarillo, CA, were said to have suffocated when their dressers tipped over, entrapping them between the dresser and the floor. The cause of the deaths has not been determined.

This voluntary recall involves “Emily” style four-drawer dressers with model numbers M4712, M4722, M4732 and M4742 and similar “Ryan” dressers with the model M4733. The dressers were sold in five finishes: Cherry, Ebony, Espresso, Honey Oak and White. The model number, “Million Dollar Baby” and “MADE IN TAIWAN” are printed on a label located on the back of the dresser.

The recalled dresser measures 33-inches high by 20-inches deep by 40-inches wide and is a part of the DaVinci children’s bedroom furniture collection. The dressers are made from pine and wood composite.

The recalled dressers, manufactured in Taiwan and the USA, were sold at JCPenney and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com, BabyUniverse.com and other online retailers from January 2006 through June 2010 for between $230 and $300.

The dressers met applicable voluntary standards when first produced, but a May 2009 voluntary industry standard, and subsequent revisions published in October 2009 and November 2009, requires that tip-over restraints be sold with the dressers.

Consumers should immediately stop using and keep the dresser out of a child’s reach.

Consumers can contact Million Dollar Baby to receive a free retrofit kit that contains a wall anchor strap, which attaches to the dresser and wall to help prevent the dresser from tipping. The kits can be ordered here or by calling toll-free (888) 673-6652 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.

Natart Chelsea dressers recalled

There is a danger the dresser could tip over, trapping a child

Gemme Juvenile of Princeville, Quebec, Canada is announcing a recall to retrofit 300 children's three-drawer dressers. If a young child climbs up open dres...

PhotoGemme Juvenile of Princeville, Quebec, Canada is announcing a recall to retrofit 300 children's three-drawer dressers. If a young child climbs up open dresser drawers, the dresser can tip over and pose the risk of entrapment.

When the dresser drawers are pulled all the way out and then the additional weight of a young child is applied, the dresser's center of gravity can be altered and result in instability of the product and consequently tip over. A child can become injured in the fall or suffocate under the weight of the fallen dresser.

The firm received a report of a two-year-old boy from Barrington, IL, who allegedly suffocated when he climbed on or up an open lower drawer into the second dresser drawer, causing the dresser to fall and trap him between the unit and the floor.

This recall involves the Chelsea three-drawer windowed dresser bearing model number 3033. The dressers were sold in five finishes: Cappuccino, Cappuccino with a brown top, Ebony, Ebony with a brown top, and Antique or French White. A sticker with the word "Natart" and the firm's logo is affixed to the inside of the top drawer. In addition, most dressers will have the model number, "Natart Juvenile," "Made in Canada" and "Chelsea 3 Drawer Dresser" printed on another label located on the back of the dresser.

The recalled dresser measures 35-inches high by 21-inches deep by 39-inches wide and is part of the Chelsea children's bedroom furniture collection. The dresser is composed of engineered wood, solid wood and wood veneers. The top drawer has two clear plastic windows in front.

The dressers, manufactured in Canada, were sold at Furniture Kidz and other independent juvenile specialty stores and at Baby.com from January 2005 to December 2010 for between $600 and $900.

The Chelsea three-drawer dresser met applicable standards when produced but was manufactured prior to the existence of the May 2009 voluntary industry standard. That standard requires tip-over restraints that attach to the interior wall, framing or other support be included with all dressers to help prevent tip-over entrapment hazards to young children.

Consumers should immediately stop using and place it out of a child's reach. Free retrofit kits that contain wall anchor straps are being offered to consumers to help prevent the dresser from tipping. The kits can be ordered by emailing the firm at safety@chelseawallanchors.com or calling toll-free at (855) 364-2619 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday

PhotoContinental is recalling approximately 1,700 motorcycle tires 180/60R16 M/C 74H ContiMotion.

Market feedback indicates that under certain conditions the tires may experience uneven wear, groove cracking and in some cases belt lift, which can lead to a loss of inflation pressure and a potential loss of control that could lead to an accident.

These conditions have been observed with Honda Gold Wing 1800 motorcycles rear tire fitment, particularly under conditions of overloading and/or under-inflation. Continental has not received any reports about accidents resulting from this condition.

The affected tires were sold in the replacement market in 2011 and 2012, primarily in the United States. Small quantities were also sold in other markets.

The tires are identified by the DOT serial numbers H60LJJE5110 through H60LJJE3811.

Continental started to notify the respective national safety authorities, such as the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on January 18, 2013.

Continental is working to identify consumers who purchased affected tires. Identified tire owners will be notified and informed about the details of the voluntary recall program.

PhotoAdvance Pharmaceutical is recalling one lot of Ferrous Sulfate tablets, 325 mg, Lot 12G468 Exp. 07/14, UPC Barcode 0 0536-5890-01 3.

The company received a pharmacist complaint that a bottle of the tablets actually contained Meclizine HCl 25 mg tablets, NDC 0536-3990-01. Taking Meclizine HCl 25 mg as Ferrous Sulfate 325 mg may cause serious side effects to those who consume alcohol or other sedatives, those with a pre-existing CNS disorder, those with imprinted kidney or liver function, the elderly, nursing infants of lactating mothers who received the drug and newborns of mothers who received the drug immediately before childbirth.

The lot was manufactured and packaged in 100 count bottles under the label of Rugby NATURAL IRON SUPPLEMENT Ferrous Sulfate.

Consumers who take three tablets daily of the defective product for treatment of iron deficiency will would be inadvertently ingesting 75 mg of meclizine HCl daily, which is close to the maximum daily adult dose in prescription meclizine drug products of 100 mg. Consumption of meclizine three times a day instead of once daily as monograph recommended is likely to lead to significant drug accumulation because it is a long-acting drug with effects that may persist up to 24 hours after a single dose.

Meclizine toxicity may lead to dose-related serious adverse events, including impaired alterness, drowsiness, confusion, low blood pressure, coma, and respiratory depression. Without supportive treatment meclizine toxicity has the potential to be life-threatening.

Consumers who have the affected lot may contact Advance Pharmaceutical with questions at 631-981-4600, Ext.300 on Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm ET.

PhotoMilo's Kitchen is recalling its Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats from retailer shelves nationally. No other Milo's Kitchen products are affected.

New York State's Department of Agriculture found trace amounts of residual antibiotics in several lots of Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky. That prompted the company to recall Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers, both of which are sourced from the same chicken suppliers.

While the use of antibiotics to keep chickens healthy and disease-free while raising them is standard practice in poultry production for both human and pet food, the antibiotics found in the products were unapproved and should not be present in the final food product.

"Consumers who discard the treats will receive a full refund," said Rob Leibowitz, general manager, Pet Products.

General Motors recalls various 2013 Chevrolet, Cadillac and GMC vehicles

A problem with lock module assembly could result in a crash

PhotoGeneral Motors is recalling 54,686 model year 2013 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado HD, Silverado LD, Suburban, and Tahoe; and GMC Savana, Sierra HD, Sierra LD, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles.

Manufactured between November 7, 2012, through December 18, 2012, the vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect", and FMVSS No. 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."

Specifically,the vehicles may have been built with a fractured park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly. As a result, the vehicle may shift from Park with the ignition key removed or the ignition key in the OFF position or shift out of Park without application of the brake pedal while the key is off. Either of these situations may cause the vehicle to roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible vehicle crash and/or injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 17.

Chevrolet owners may call 1-800-630-2438. Cadillac owners may call 1-866-982-2339. GMC owners may call 1-866-996-9463.

Subaru recalls a variety of vehicles including Legacies and Outbacks

An electrical problem could pose a smoke or fire hazard

Subaru is recalling nearly 634,000 vehicles as follows: model year 2010 and 2011 Legacy and Outback vehicles; model year 2006 through 2012 Tribeca vehicle...

PhotoSubaru is recalling nearly 634,000 vehicles as follows:

  • model year 2010 and 2011 Legacy and Outback vehicles;
  • model year 2006 through 2012 Tribeca vehicles sold before January 2012; and
  • certain model year 2009 through 2012 Forester vehicles sold before January 2012.

Up to 53,999 of these vehicles may have been equipped with accessory puddle lights that, when illuminated, brighten the area under the doors of the vehicle. A short circuit can develop when either the puddle light or connector are exposed to an electrolytic moisture source (such as road spray that has road salt in it) and it penetrates the circuit board of the puddle light or the pins of the puddle light connector(s).

Over time, migration of the moisture into the circuit board and/or into the connector cavity, may result in a short circuit of the puddle light system. This may generate heat which may melt the plastic resulting in smoke or fire.

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional fused-harness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during February 2013.

Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 for more information.

PhotoThe Brower division of Hawkeye Steel Products Inc., of Houghton, IA, is recalling about 2,500 model TH120 Brower Top Hatch incubators.

The base can ignite during use, posing a fire hazard. The company has received three reports of fires, all of which resulted in property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The product is a round, light gray plastic egg incubator with a clear plastic top used to hatch many different types of eggs. The incubator is 18 inches in diameter and 12 inches tall. The recalled model TH120 Brower Top Hatch incubator has two main components: tray and a base. A crank arm and a turner motor are located in the base. The crank arm snaps into place on the turner motor. The motor turns the crank arm which, in turn, rotates the tray. The clear plastic top has an engraving which says, "THIS SIDE UP." The model number is located on the side of the packaging box.

The incubators, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at Mills Fleet Farm, Stromberg's Chick and Gamebirds, Unlimited and other farm supply retailers from January 2009 to September 2010 for about $190.

Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact the company for a free replacement base at (800) 553-1791, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
