Relevant Recalls and Safety Alerts

Several recalls have hit the news, plus two important messages from Dr. Sears:
  • Listening to NPR this morning, I heard about the recall of a popular brand of soccer goal net. I won't recount the specifics of the description of what happened because it was just so horrible, but if you have older children who use a soccer goal net in the yard, and toddlers as well, PLEASE check this recall out!
  • Pottery Barn recently issued a recall for some metal water bottles it sells.
  • Recently Simplicity made bassinets were recalled, but there has been some confusion and doubts raised about a popular co-sleeper product, due to the wording in the original press release. The Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper is safe to use, and Dr. Sears has issued a special statement to allay any fears one may have.
  • Also on Dr. Sears' website is his discussion of the recent study that has refuted a key study that found a causal link between autism and the MMR vaccine. Dr. Sears, who developed an alternative "slower" vaccination schedule advises parents about the implications and whether or not they should still split the vaccine apart.
