Common Sense Still Needed After a Product Recall

By Rick Shapiro, Hampton Personal Injury Lawyer

Parents must realize that just because the company took it upon themselves to issue the recall does not make the product any less dangerous. My colleague referenced the Bumbo Baby seat. Unfortunately, even with increased warnings and hazard indication after the company issued a voluntary recall, 84 reports of falls occurred after the first recall, leaving room to consider whether a second recall will actually cause any marked reduction in the incidence of injury in children using this product.
