As you and your loved ones welcome the year 2023, you might feel confident in the belief that the days of dangerous toys and children’s products are decades behind you. Unfortunately, harmful products do still slip out into the mass market from time to time and necessitate a recall.
If your child or any other family member suffers harm due to a defective product, you have the right to pursue compensation through a product liability claim. To reduce the risk of such harm in the first place, it is a good practice to familiarize yourself with any noteworthy toy recalls following the holiday season.
Which 2022 holiday season children’s products are under recall?
After placing some exciting toys under the tree, or receiving helpful children’s products from your friends and family over the holiday season, it might be a good idea to double-check if any of the items in your house are actually unsafe for use. Noteworthy toy and children’s product recalls from the period leading up to the 2022 Christmas season include:
- Jungle Jumparoo children’s toys
- William Garter Company fleece pajamas

What should you do if you have a recalled product?
The most important thing to do if you have a recalled product in your home is to remove it from your child’s reach, especially if it contains a harmful substance such as lead. You should then follow any instructions provided in the recall notice to properly dispose of or replace the item in question.
Product recalls can be frustrating, but it is important to abide by them and pursue legal action if necessary.
