Check out the latest Children's Product Recalls from May 2018
It’s been almost exactly one year since I first set foot in the Safe Kids office and accepted a position to join the team. And what a year it’s been.
I don’t currently have any children, but I do plan on having some in the far-off future. And I want to be a good mom.
Working at Safe Kids as a pre-mom has opened my eyes to the shocking world of child injury. I’ve worked my way through a bunch of topics – some of which I have a general knowledge of like sports safety and medication safety; and others risk areas I didn’t even know were a hazard.
Safe Kids is committed to keeping you informed about recalls of products that can put kids at risk. This recall report includes inclined sleeper accessories posing an infant suffocation risk as well as children’s swimsuits and rompers posing choking, laceration and pinching hazards. The Safe Kids’ recall center is a unique place where parents and caregivers can go to stay up-to-date on recalls of all child-related products.

“My goal is to keep Christina’s legacy alive. That’s why I’m working with my community to raise awareness and educate students about the dangers of distracted walking.”
My name is Gwen Ward. I live in Montgomery County, Maryland. Last year, my family suffered an unthinkable tragedy. My 15-year-old daughter, Christina, was killed while crossing the street on her way to school.
Christina was an incredible kid. She was outgoing and opinionated and loved to debate, especially with me. She was a typical teenager in all the right ways.
My twin boys were going to turn 4 in six days. That’s when our lives changed forever.
The day before had been an unseasonably warm day for late October in Vancouver, Washington, where I live with my husband, Jason, and our three children, Bailey (older sister), Zane and Thomas (twin boys). We had decided to take advantage of the weather by opening our windows to air out the house. The next day I picked up my twins at preschool and we went to the store to choose mixes and frosting for their birthday cakes. We drove home, ate lunch and then the boys went down for their naps.
