A line of baby walkers and children's coats and jackets that fail to meet federal safety standards are among this week's recalled consumer products.
Here's a more detailed look:
DETAILS: BebeLove walkers that were sold for babies age 6 months or older. The walkers contain a plastic- covered foam padded seat with a plastic base and toy tray. Model 358 walkers have a green, pink or orange musical tray with a white toy bar and solid color seats. Model 368 walkers have green, pink or white musical tray with a yellow toy bar and printed patterned seats. Both models have white stoppers on the bottom of the base of the walker and model numbers printed on a label on the rear bottom inside of the base. "BEBELOVE" is printed on a label on the seat back and on the base of the walkers. They were sold in small retail stores in Arizona, California and Utah and online at Amazon.com and Overstock.com from November 2011 through July 2013.
WHY: The walkers failed to meet federal safety standards. Specifically, style number 358 can fit through a standard doorway and is not designed to stop at the edge of a step as required by the federal safety standard. Style number 368 contains leg openings that allow the child to slip down until the child's head can become entrapped at the neck. Babies using these walkers can be seriously injured or killed.
INCIDENTS: None reported.
HOW MANY: About 3,600.

WHY: The jackets have drawstrings in the hood around the neck area that pose a strangulation risk for young children.
