Major Product Recalls
Consumers often take product safety for granted, but accidents happen — and sometimes those accidents are deadly. In the case of the UPPAbaby Ridge Jogging Stroller, the item was recalled before things reached that level. After a report of a child's fingertip being amputated, the company told consumers to stop using the stroller and contact UPPAbaby for replacement brake discs. The current brake discs have openings that can cause serious injury if a child's finger should get caught. The stroller remains on the market, but that's not usually the case when things become more serious. From dangerous cars to risky toys, many notable items have had to be yanked off the market.
