It seems like every time you turn around there is a new baby product recall on the news, or the popular parenting websites helping to warn parents to either ditch the product, or look up some replacement parts.
We actually had three products in our home recalled this year alone, which certainly frightens me as a parent, what is next right?
Looking back over the year 2011 I looked back at some of the most popular recalls we saw. Everything from strollers, to pacifiers and products like the Bumbo seat on its second recall because some parents are just idiots… and do not use the product properly.
The list includes links that detail each safety recall just incase any of the readers here would like more information on the product recall!
