Choking Hazard Prompts Feels Real Baby Doll Recall

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on March 29, 2012

Another children’s product to add to an ever-growing list of defective products shipped from China.

This particular recall concerns Carson-based importer Lakeshore Learning Materials’s Feels Real Baby Dolls.  Around 4,300 dolls are affected by the announcement throughout North America, with a majority of the units residing in the United States.

The issue has to do with the dolls’ finger and toe appendages, which can detach from the dolls.  This would entail a choking hazard for the children playing with the item.  Thankfully there have been no injuries reported in conjunction with this recall.

The dolls in question are 14 inches high and come in a variety of ethnicities.  They wear diapers that contain a label that says “Lakeshore” and “550200.”  They were available through Lakeshore’s catalogues and website.  Retailing for about $20, the items were sold between May 2011 and January of this year.

Consumers have been advised to take the dolls out of children’s reach and contact the company in order to obtain a replacement item.

As a personal injury lawyer in Fresno, I find all recalls to be disappointing, but I’m particularly disheartened when it comes to recalled children’s products.  Kids aren’t expected to worry about safety hazards the way an adult might, and I would hope that manufacturers take particular care to make sure that products for children are safe.  Alas, situations like this seem far too common to this Ventura personal injury lawyer.
