The relatively recent introduction of electronic cigarettes into the marketplace poses new concerns from some safety officials.

On Feb. 5, the Consumer Product Safety Commission published a recall for a children's highchair. The product, manufactured by a company called Mima, is suspected of having a design defect that reportedly allows the high chair to come loose from its base. According to the recall, the "Mima Moon 3 in 1 high chair" has the potential to injure children sitting in the device or crawling under it.
