Beaba has recalled two of their products due to concerns over safety. The popular models, Babycook Neo Midnight and Cloud baby food makers have received over 300 hundred complaints about the glass bowls shattering.
While many users got away with just a scare, there have been some minor injuries. Both of the designs are supposed to make it easier for parents who want to make their own baby food, instead of buying expensive store-bought products. The 9-inch wide and 9-inch high steamer/blender has a detachable glass bowl, easy for feeding your child or emptying out into storage containers. However, due to issues with the gadget, the bowl is proving to be a dangerous problem.
Both electrical pieces debuted in July of 2018 and were sold through to February of 2019, retailing between $200-$250 a piece. Numerous stores carried them, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Williams Sonoma, and USA Baby & Child. They were also available online to purchase on various websites.
Making your own baby food can be a great way to ensure your child is getting all the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. Cooking in batches also gives busy parents the option of freezing for a later date. Although the Beaba products aren't the bestselling ones of their kind, they became popular due to their sleek and compact designs. It's not clear exactly how many units were sold, but the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates it at around 5,000 in the US with a further 650 sold in Canada.
If you have one of these products, it's important that you stop using them straight away - even if you think yours is fine. If you swear by it, don't worry, you won't have to do away with your handy blender altogether. Simply contact Beaba, who will send you out a replacement bowl. Those that have experienced a similar issue with the bowl shattering can report it via the CPSC page by clicking on the "Report an Incident Involving this Product" tab towards the end of the release. Whether you're reporting or claiming your replacement, you'll need to quote recall number 19-122.
Remember, it's better to be safe than sorry!
