Hazardous hair dryers, unstoppable strollers, zombie coffee grinders, and breakable cribs are this week’s stars of the Recall Roundup. Watch out!
Bugaboo strollers – As the CPSC puts it, “One or both sides of the brakes can fail, causing a stroller to unexpectedly roll away on an incline. This can pose a risk of injury to the child occupant.” They’ve been on the market for about two years.
Sanyo hair dryers – sold only around Los Angeles. Missing the feature that turns off the dryer if it’s dropped in water.
Viking refrigerator/freezers – The doors can fall off, and have caused bruises and broken fingers and toes.
Starbucks coffee grinders – Grinder can suddenly turn itself back on during cleaning, which is problematic if your fingers happen to be in the way.
Speedy children’s hooded sweatshirts – drawstring poses strangulation hazard.
Warm Biscuit children’s pajamas – Don’t meet children’s sleepwear flammability standards.
