TopGlore Announces the Recall of Narskido Infant Bath Seats Due to Potential Drowning Risk; Only Available via Amazon.com (Urgent Recall Notification)
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Narskido Infant Bath Seats by TopGlore don’t comply with federal safety guidelines specific to infant bath seats, including stipulations on stability and leg slot dimensions, and can inadvertently topple while being utilized, presenting an imminent risk of drowning for infants. The infant bath seats were voluntarily recalled on June 08, 2023.
The recall pertains to Narskido infant bath seats produced by TopGlore. These bath seats are fabricated from molded plastic in hues of light blue and white, featuring suction cups on the base, a detachable handle at the forefront, and a temperature gauge mounted at the rear base.
Customers are urged to halt use of the recalled infant bath seats immediately, and to reach out to TopGlore via the Amazon interface for a comprehensive refund of the item’s cost. Customers will be instructed to discard the recalled item. TopGlore, in conjunction with Amazon, is contacting all verified purchasers directly through Amazon’s platform.
The infant bath seats were available online only on Amazon.com between May 2022 and September 2022 for a price point around $30. Huangshi Top Box E-Commerce Co. Ltd., also known as TopGlore, imported the infant seats. They are based in Flushing, New York.
Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit
Product liability lawsuits play a vital role in keeping companies accountable for the safety of their products. The recent recall of the Narskido Infant Bath Seats provides a case in point. To file a product liability lawsuit, particularly in the case of infant deaths caused by a dangerous and recalled product such as this, one must meet specific qualifying criteria.
Firstly, it is essential to establish that the product was defective. This can be a design flaw, manufacturing defect, or a failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions. In the case of Narskido Infant Bath Seats, the products fail to meet federal safety standards, suggesting a design flaw.
Secondly, it must be proven that the defect directly caused injury or harm. For infant deaths caused by the Narskido Infant Bath Seats, this would mean proving that the seat’s design flaws led to a tipping hazard which in turn led to drowning incidents.
Thirdly, the product must have been used as intended or in a way that the manufacturer could reasonably expect. If an infant was using the Narskido Infant Bath Seat at the time of the incident, this requirement would be met.
Lastly, the plaintiff must have suffered some sort of damage. In the heartbreaking cases of infant deaths, this is tragically clear.
Product liability claims fall under the umbrella of tort law. This branch of law provides remedies for civil wrongs not arising out of contractual obligations. A plaintiff who successfully proves that a product was defective may recover damages for medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain, suffering, and in the event of death, funeral expenses.
It’s also worth noting that the liability can extend beyond the manufacturer. In this case, for instance, Amazon, as the exclusive seller, and the importer, Huangshi Top Box E-Commerce Co. Ltd. (TopGlore), could also potentially be held liable.
However, navigating a product liability lawsuit can be complex and will usually require the expertise of a legal professional. The nuances of proving negligence, establishing causation, and calculating damages make these lawsuits far from straightforward. So if you suspect that you or a loved one have been harmed by a product, it’s essential to seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
This recall of Narskido Infant Bath Seats serves as a stark reminder of the importance of product safety and corporate accountability. Consumers have a right to trust that the products they purchase, particularly those intended for their children, are safe and reliable. When that trust is broken, legal recourse should be readily available.
