Popular Retail Stores T.J. Maxx and Marshalls Face Numerous Product Recalls; Some Products Deadly to Infants

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently issued a public recall for nineteen items being sold among several T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods, and Marshalls stores nationwide.

About the T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods, & Marshalls Recalls

According to WTOP, the official recall was ordered Tuesday, November 26th, and may include items that were marked down during Black Friday 2019. The same particular 19 products faced similar recalls between 2014 to 2019. Despite this, TJX Companies, owners of the three retail franchises facing recalls, decided to sell the products anyway.

Approximately, 1,200 product units were immediately  recalled according to the CPSC. The diversity of the items ranged drastically from baby toys to kitchen supplies. Certain products were so entirely hazardous that severe issues such as infant mortality, lacerations, or explosion were capable of happening after product use.

TJX company owners have stepped up to acknowledge the careless incident with deeply apologetic advice and solutions. They, along with the CPSC, are advising consumers to check their products for critical recall notices and to notify participating stores for a full refund, repair, or replacement item.
