The Consumer Product Safety Commission has sent out recall notices for home elevators and children’s bathrobes in an effort to address child safety hazards.
The CPSC announced this week three different manufacturers would recall home elevators due to their risk of serious injury or death for young children.
Children have gotten trapped in the doorway, and a 7-year-old child suffered fatal injuries at his family’s vacation home in North Carolina.
The three elevator manufacturers — Bella Elevator, LLC, Inclinator Company of America, and Savaria Corporation — are now working with the CPSC to recall 69,000 home elevators.
The agency also released a warning to consumers to stop using home elevators made by a fourth company, Waupaca Elevator Company, Inc., after they failed to comply with the CPSC’s recall.
The CPSC also sent out a voluntary recall notice Tuesday for children’s bathrobes sold by HulovoX on Amazon because they pose a risk of catching fire and causing burn injuries to children.
No injuries have been reported, but about 3,500 long-sleeved bathrobes sold between January 2021 and May 2021 for around $30 were recalled out of an abundance of caution, according to the CPSC.
The designs included multicolored tie-dye and rainbow colorways.
