Some of the biggest recalls in the last 10 years

When defective products are found out, recalls are often issued. However, consumers sometimes do not realize that these recalls exist for various reasons, and they can still be harmed by these products. Below are a few of the biggest recalls from the last decade.

Infantino Baby Slings

Back in 2010, the company Infantino had to recall about 1 million baby slings. The products were not breaking, but they were designed in such a way that they could make it hard for the babies to breathe.

Graco High Chairs

One of the high chairs made by Graco led to at least two dozen injuries, and so the company had to recall about 1.2 million of them. This recall was put out by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Toyota and Lexus Cars

This recall also happened in 2010, and it made national news because some Toyotas were said to be accelerating uncontrollably due to faulty pedals, a serious accident risk. Because of this, the company had to recall a large number of Toyota models and some of the models made by Toyota's luxury brand, Lexus.

Roman Blinds

This recall was huge, impacting 50 million blinds. The problem with Roman-style designs was that hanging cords were a hazard to young children and babies; some of them had been strangled and killed by the cords. This recall happened in 2009, and it was one of the biggest to ever take place.

This is just a small sample of recent recalls, but it really shows how many products can be impacted. If you've been injured by defective products in Illinois, whether they've been recalled or not, you need to know what options you have.

  1. "Committed To My Cause"

    I was struck by a car while cycling and severely, almost fatally injured. A team of excellent medical professionals performed complicated and extensive surgical and medical procedures as part of a successful effort to restore my health....
    -Jeff D.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
