Recalls: Children’s clothing, fitness products and more


Parents, fitness buffs and those prone to bug bites should check to see if they have the potentially dangerous products being recalled this week.

Infant and toddler coveralls sold under the name ED by Ellen DeGeneres are under recall because the bunny applique can come off and pose a choking hazard for your child, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

One person reported a child putting the detached bunny into their mouth, but no injuries have been reported. 

The recalled products have the style ED01210 in 3, 6 and 9 month sizes,  and ED13210 in 12, 18 and 24 month sizes. They also have the manufacture date of  08/2017. 

Don’t let your child wear the coveralls and contact Weeplay KIds at 888-854-6563 or return them to Marshalls or Buy Buy Baby stores for a full refund.   

Travel:  what you’ll likely be paying more for the next time you fly

Weightlifting safety straps are being recalled because the stitching can come loose and cause weights to fall on you. 

The recalled Titan Safety straps have the model numbers 24T3STRAP, 26T2STRAP, 30X3STRAP, 36T3STRAP, X2STRAP24, 24X3STRAP, 36X3STRA and were sold in packages of two. 

There is one report of a strap breaking under moderate weight and three other strap failures, but no injuries, according to the CPSC.

Contact Titan at 800-605-8241 for a full refund or free replacement straps.
