Recent Baby Product Recalls
We also think it’s essential to let you know when products are recalled for safety reasons, so we’ve compiled this list of the most recent baby product recalls.
Unless you register every toy you buy, there’s no way for a company to notify you of a recall. And since not every product comes with the option to register it, you have no way of knowing about a recall unless you regularly look for the information.
Here’s a list of the most recent baby product recalls to ensure that you don’t miss any of them.

This wooden teether consists of various shapes, including flowers, dinosaurs, or boats attached to a ring of wooden beads. The wooden beads can come loose from the teether, allowing babies and small kids to put them in their mouths.
The loose beads pose a choking hazard for babies and small children. If you purchased one of these teethers, stop using it immediately.
The date codes for these recalled teethers are 03-2021, 10-2020, and 02-2019. The teasers in question come in 12 different styles, but all have a base ring of wooden beads. The teethers measure 3×3 inches and have the company name Bebe au Lait stamped on the teether.
You can contact Bebe au Lait through email, their website, or phone at (800) 270-9398 for a refund or credit.
The Inspector Play Kit is a subscription box that ships every two months designed to help promote motor skills with small stacking objects, speech development, memory development, and object permanence in seven- to eight-month-old babies.
A steel drinking cup with a handle in play kits sold from July 2018 to July 2021 poses a choking hazard because the handle can detach from the cup. Consumers have filed over 70 reports of the handle becoming detached.
Take the cup away from the child but don’t throw it away because the process of getting a replacement cup requires a few steps.
To get a replacement steel cup, you’ll need to use a permanent marker to write the words “X Recalled X” inside the cup. Then take a photo of the cup that shows what you wrote inside and upload that photo while you register on the Lovevery website.
You’ll also need to affirm that you will recycle the cup following local recycling guidelines, or you will throw it in the trash.
If you have any questions, you can contact Lovevery by email or phone at (877) 367-3175.
Most child development experts and pediatricians recommend against using infant walkers because of the risk of accidents and injuries that come with them. Walker’s regularly come up in lists of recent baby product recalls because of these hazards.
This Zeno infant walker doesn’t meet the federal safety standard of stopping at the edge of a step to prevent a child from falling down one or more stairs. The leg openings are also large enough for a child to slip through. The leg holes risk entrapment and choking if the child’s head gets stuck with constriction around the neck.
These walkers pose a grave risk of injury or death. If you have this infant walker, stop using it immediately. The walkers can be black and white, blue and gray, or other colors.
There is no specific serial number associated with the recalled products. If you own any infant Walker manufactured by Zeno, you should contact them by email. They’ll send a shipping label to return the walker at no cost and give you a full refund.
The recalled H&M light pink children’s sleepwear sets with the Product ID Number 1044037001 have an external label on the bottom edge of the shirt that says, “Every Day is a Cozy Day, Dream Your Best Life.”
If you own one of these recalled sleepwear sets that consists of a long-sleeved top and sleep pants, don’t let your child wear the garments anymore. The clothing poses a risk of burn injuries because it fails to meet the federal standards for flammability in children’s sleepwear.
You can contact H&M through their website or phone at (855) 466-7467 for a full refund.
This Adam the Apple™ Stackable Toy consists of a smiling apple made from wood that separates into slices, each with a colorful image that’s part of a story about Adam getting through his day.
The Apple stands about six inches tall with a leaf on top that says “By Chris Bayon, Illustrated by Patrick Carlson.”
This toy is recalled because the paint on the apple’s surface contains lead in an amount that exceeds federal standards. Lead is toxic and can cause developmental delays and health problems in young children.
The toy sold from June to November 2021 on the company’s website and at the Philadelphia Gift Show in July 2021. Some people may have received it free at the Philadelphia Gift Show.
If you own this Stack Em’ Up Books toy, remove it from the child’s play space immediately and get in touch with them via their website for a shipping label to return it for a full refund. If you have questions, you can contact the company by email or phone at (267) 987-3328.
These children’s make-believe handbags have metal studs, rivets, D-rings, O-rings, and zipper sliders that contain lead exceeding the amount in the federal lead content ban.
The play handbags are exclusive to Kelly Wynne LLC and sold through the company’s website and at Nordstrom from July 2020 to October 2021.
The toy purses in question measure about 6.5 in high and 9.5 in wide and came in three color combinations: taupe, coral, and coral with purple. Each bag has a golden label sewn inside with the Kelly Wynne logo.
The UPC and SKU numbers of the recalled bags are:
- SKU MINI500 and UPC 850023783288
- SKU MINI875 and UPC 850023783288

If you purchased the bag through the Kelly Wynne website, you should contact them through email or phone at (512) 472-5762 for information on how to get a full refund.
Email or call (800) 804-0806 for a refund if you purchased the bag at Nordstrom. You can also read the product recall page on their website.
Strollers that don’t work correctly often make lists of baby product recalls. This Valco Baby Snap Due Trend Stroller has faulty front wheels that can break off while the stroller is moving. If a wheel breaks, the stroller will tip, and children inside the stroller could fall.
The strollers in question come in charcoal, denim, night, and gray colors with a number printed on a label that’s attached to the bottom of the stroller frame.
Model numbers N9938, N9939, N9872, and N0001 are part of the recall. Also, strollers with the numbers 7884, 7885, and 7886 on the label post a hazard, too.
Four styles of children’s sleepwear are part of this recall. The garments are made of cotton, modal, and spandex and come in unicorn, cherry, shimmer sweets, and bunny prints.
The clothing fails to meet the federal standard for flammability in children’s sleepwear, posing a burn hazard.
The sizes of the recalled sleepwear are 12 months to 14 years. The sleepwear was sold online and through children’s clothing stores from May to August 2021.
The recalled sleepwear from Esme has a style number that starts with SF9 and a cut number 1812, 7104, 7082, or 2730. The style and cut numbers appear behind the label that states the size and how to care for the garment.
You can contact Esme through their website, email, or phone at (833) 961-7011 for a refund or replacement.
These children’s nightgowns sold exclusively on amazon.com from October 2017 to June 2021. The garments fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, posing a burn hazard.
The recalled nightgowns are in sizes 3T through 9 and come in 100% cotton. The designs vary and include pink and pink-striped nightgowns with flower prints, unicorn prints, lace, and three ribbons at the neckline.
Other nightgowns included in the recall are a blue and pink nightgown with a cherries print and green, red, and yellow striped nightgowns with an embroidered cherry on the upper left chest.
The nightgowns have a sewn-in label with Chinese lettering on the inside. The recalled garments come with long sleeves and short sleeves, and one long-sleeved nightgown came with a matching nightgown for a doll.
Stop using the nightgown immediately and contact AllMeInGeld for a refund.
The Kids Reiny crew sock features a reindeer design with small bells circling the ankle. The bells can become detached from the sock and pose a choking hazard.
The socks in children’s medium and large sizes retailed across the US and online from November to December 2021. The UPC codes on the sock’s hangtag will be UPC M: 19107481113 or UPC L: 190107481120
If you own these socks, stop using them immediately and contact Stance on their website, through email, or by phone at (888) 391-9020 to return them for a full refund.
This limited edition plush toy looks like an orange monster with two legs and an open mouth full of teeth. The creature is armless with gray antlers and red and green pom-poms on its head.
An attached card says “Warhammer 40,000” and “Bounca the Squig Limited Edition Plush.”
A sewn-in label says “Koyo” and “Manufactured by GA Global Limited.” This plush toy appeared in Warhammer and Games Workshop stores across the United States from October to November 2021.
The toy’s tag says it’s safe for children ages 12 months and older, but the pom-poms can become detached from the toy and pose a choking hazard.
You can contact Games Workshop through their website, email, or call (877) 426-0130 to get a full refund.
Mushie & Co’s FRIGG silicone pacifiers have a silicone nipple that can split and become detached from the plastic shield, posing a choking hazard.
The recalled pacifiers came in over 40 colors and had either a round plastic shield or a daisy-shaped scalloped-edge shield. Each one sold in a zero to six-month size and a six- to 18-month size.
The handle attached to the plastic shield has the name FRIGG in raised letters.
Various stores across the United States and online sold these pacifiers from April to December of 2021.
You can get credit for the purchase price of the pacifier or a full refund. To get a refund, you need to cut the nipple off the plastic shield and send a photograph of both pieces to Mushie & Co through their website.
If you have questions, you can contact Mushie & Co. through email or call (877) 687-4431 for more information.
These imported BAOPTEIL children’s robes were sold exclusively at Amazon.com from December 2019 to August 2021.
The robes fail to meet federal flammability standards for children’s garments and pose a burn hazard.
The robes are 100% micro-polyester or fleece. The sizes range from 2T to 14 years, and the colors and patterns vary. A label sewn into the side seam states the washing instructions, fiber content, and “Made in China.”
The recalled robes have long sleeves and hoods with two front pockets and a sewn-on matching belt.
If you purchased one of these robes, Amazon should have already contacted you and offered a prepaid mailer so you can return the robe for a full refund. If they haven’t contacted you, you can get in touch with BAOPTEIL through email to request a mailer to return the robe for a refund.
When you purchase baby products, children’s clothing, or kids’ toys, register the product through the company’s website if they give you that option. It’s the only way they can contact you in the case of a recall.
You can’t always rely on retailers or manufacturers to contact you when baby product recalls affect you, even when you register. You can keep up on the latest recalls through the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
