Joovy is recalling approximately 1,500 Zoom car seat adapters. Adapter clips can loosen on the stroller frame, posing a fall hazard.

This recall involves all Joovy Zoom gray metal car seat stroller adapters. The adapters are gray with black plastic clips designed to attach infant car seats to stroller frames. Recalled car seat adapter models include 00945 for Graco, 00946 for Chicco and 00947 for Peg Perego frames. 'Joovy' and the model numbers can be found on the label at the center of the end bar of the adapter.

To date, Joovy has received nine reports of incidents involving loose adapters on stroller frames.

The recalled Zoom car seat adapters were sold at independent specialty juvenile retailers and online between May 2012 and August 2013.

Consumers should immediately stop using these adapters and contact Joovy for a free repair kit to help assure proper attachment to Zoom stroller frames.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning the public to keep these products—which contain the active ingredients tetrahydrozoline, oxymetazoline, or naphazoline (known as imidazoline derivatives)—out of the reach of children at all times. The products are sold under various brand names such as Visine, Dristan and Mucinex, as well as in generic and store brands.

For school children across the state of North Carolina and beyond, lunch at school can present itself as a time to eat pizza, cookies, chips, french fries, and other unhealthy options that may not typically be on the menu at home. To help combat the less-than-healthy choices that kids make on their own, many parents choose to pack lunches at home.

Have you ever left or thought about leaving the kids in the car while you make a 'quick stop' at the supermarket, dry cleaner or post office? It only takes a second for your car to shift into gear and rollaway, leaving your kids in tremendous danger.

It'll only be a minute, you say. You crack the windows and lock the car leaving your sleeping infant cozy in her car seat. The problem is that it's never just a minute. It's always longer than that and it only takes 10 minutes for your car to heat up to dangerous temperatures—potentially killing or permanently injuring your child.
