Fake and Dangerous Infant Products Are Showing Up For Sale On Amazon – Here’s What You Should Know

There's a good chance you have bought something on Amazon in the past month and it may be counterfeit. With Amazon cornering almost 40% of the e-commerce market it's almost guaranteed that they will sell us a product. 

When using Amazon do you pay attention to whether the item is from a third-party seller or directly from Amazon?

While many of the items bought are harmless, there are some that can be fatal. Recently CNN purchased and tested some of the counterfeit child apparel from China and found that they do not come close to US safety standards.

In fact, when they tested a bogus Doona the car-seat exploded under the stress of a 30 mph collision, not only launching the test-dummy infant but also sending plastic shrapnel ricocheting around the car.

Based on the number of products being imported, there's a good chance something you have recently purchased from a third-party seller does not meet the safety standards that we hold our American companies to. The unintentional consequence of saving a few dollars could be catastrophic. 

If you have been injured by a counterfeit product, contact your St. Louis dangerous product attorneys immediately.

Too many people have tried to fit costly items into their budget through third-party sellers only to find out the hard way that it was not worth it. Contact your St. Louis dangerous product attorneys to protect yourself.
