Recall: Children’s Tents Recalled Due to Laceration Hazard
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall of about 84,000 “Playtime Pals Pop-Up Hideaway Hut” children’s tents. The tents come in a variety of styles and colors. Reports have been made that the fiberglass rob that supports the tent can break and splinter, becoming a laceration hazard to children.
Important Information About Children’s Tents
The products were manufactured by Jinhua Longyou Import and Export Co., of China and imported and distributed by the Jewett Cameron Company. The tents were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide in November 2017. Parents and care providers should immediately stop using this product. The product can be returned to Home Depot for refund.
More than 250,000 toy-related injuries occur in the United States each year. There are strict federal regulations governing the manufacturing of children’s products, including rattles, to protect against injuries from dangerous and defective products.
