We’ll be honest, we’ve never seen something like this before. Most recalls are for a single product, but this recall alert is for 19 (nineteen) separate products, each of which had their own alerts in the past — some of which we featured.
Most concerning are the Rocking Sleepers by Kids II, and other inclined sleepers, were sold by these stores after they were recalled. This is a pretty scary considering how many infants have died using those types of products. In fact, it’s something we wrote about the massive inclined sleeper recall back in the spring. There’s a lot to go through, but we wanted to make sure we put it out there for you to read in full.
Before we get to the full details of those 19 product, we need to mention another infant related recall. After that, you’ll see information about the T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods recalls.
