Recall roundup
Recent recalls include:

Children’s wood storage racks by Jetmax International are recalled because the racks can tip over, which can entrap and suffocate young children.

Football helmet chin straps by Nike Inc. are unsafe because the chin strap’s plastic cup can break as a result of contact, exposing the player to facial or head injuries.

Girls and boys bath robes by The Bon-Ton Department Stores Inc. pose a burn risk to children.

Youth ATVs by Baja Motorsports pose an injury risk to riders because the ATVs lack a tire pressure gauge and flag pole mounting bracket.

Snow and sand castle kits by Paricon Inc. can cut kids because the markers can break, creating sharp edges.

Flashing pacifiers by Sailing (U.S.) International Corp. can cause choking because the nipple can detach from the base.

Children’s hooded sweatshirts by The Bon-Ton Department Stores Inc. have drawstrings through the hood, which can strangle children.

Performance fleece-lined boys’ jackets by Old Navy have a waist drawstring, which poses an entrapment hazard.
