Consumer Alert: Digital video baby monitors pose a fire risk along with many more flawed products

Attorney General Todd Rokita is alerting Hoosiers of important consumer protection concerns for products recalled in August. This is the time to take advantage of opportunities available for those who purchased these recalled items. 


“Starting a family can be a joyous and scary time for parents,” Attorney General Rokita said. “You shouldn’t have to worry if your new baby is safe and if the items they’re using are defective or could cause you or your family harm. If you purchased one of the recalled products, stop using it immediately and pursue resolution from the manufacturer immediately.”  


According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the following consumer products were recalled in August:  


Philips Avent Digital Video Baby Monitors from Philips Personal Health 
Simplay3 Toddler Towers from The Simplay3 Company   
Avena Mini Table Lamps from Crate & Barrel 
Carboys from Saxco International   
Fireworks from 13131 Imports 
Dehumidifiers from Gree   
Midwest Lubricants Sodium Hydroxide from Midwest Lubricants   
Ubio Labs power banks from Costco   


If you believe you recently purchased a recalled product, stop using it, and check its recall notice. Then, follow the notice’s instructions, including where to return the product or what steps must be taken to receive a replacement product.
