According to multiple news agencies, “B-Hip Bids by Me Jane” and simply “Me Jane” girls’ jackets manufactured in China and brought to the country by Louise Paris Ltd., are being recalled.
An official announcement published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has revealed that about 13,000 units of these jackets with faux fur trim have drawstrings that were incorrectly produced and that could pose an entanglement hazard to children. Consumers can identify these recalled and possibly hazardous products by the labels that read “Me Jane Kids”. All jackets come in charcoal grey, green and black with drawstrings that could come in black, coffee, purple, pink or cream.
All recalled items were sold across the nation between November 2011 and January 2012.
The federal agency has urged consumers to remove the drawstring from these recalled jackets right away and to contact the company to learn about how they should proceed in order to receive a full refund.
As a Lancaster personal injury lawyer, I sincerely hope that all recalled items are returned to the company before any child is injured. Too often, reports of injuries or incidents related to defective products surface before any recalls are issued. I’m glad that the company was able to address this problem before anybody was hurt.
Keep it in mind that you could consult with a personal injury lawyer in your city if you or a loved one is ever injured through the use or consumption of a recalled product.
