In this week’s issue, we have a couple of stories for all the parents out there. The first centers around an open investigation into a potential defect in HALO’s BassiNest Flex, a portable bassinet that reportedly has a tendency to lean and cause the sleeping baby inside to roll over. We’ll also touch on a recently filed lawsuit claiming that certain Diaper Genie refills don’t last as long as advertised.
You’ll also find two new investigations into leaking BMW sunroofs and the overtime payment practices at Search Wizards, respectively. Keep reading for these stories and, as always, the latest class action settlements you may be able to claim.
The things we buy for babies should be safe above all else, so it’s no surprise that heads turn when parents begin reporting that a product may be unsafe. In this instance, the product at issue is the HALO BassiNest Flex, which is advertised as a “flexible safe sleep solution.” Parents are complaining online that, even when assembled correctly, the bassinet isn’t level and can cause babies to roll to one side. In some cases, parents have claimed that their infant ended up with their face against the bassinet’s mesh wall, raising concerns about suffocation. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org have launched an investigation into the issue and are now looking into whether a lawsuit could be filed. It’s possible that a lawsuit could help get HALO customers their money back and potentially force the company to recall or fix the product. Want more? You can read up on all the details here.
If you worked at Search Wizards as a talent recruiter in the past three years, attorneys working with ClassAction.org want to speak with you. They have reason to believe that the staffing agency broke federal law by failing to grant its talent acquisition specialists (also known as recruiters or sourcers) proper overtime pay. One lawsuit has already been filed, but more people are needed to come forward to help with the litigation. A successful lawsuit could provide current and former talent recruiters with money for their unpaid overtime hours. It could also force the company to make changes to how it pays its employees. If you were a talent recruiter for Search Wizards at any time within the past three years and believe you were underpaid for your overtime hours, check out this page for the details.

If you drive a 2018 or 2019 BMW X3 or X5 and had water leak in from the sunroof, attorneys working with ClassAction.org want to hear your story. They’re investigating whether a defect is causing the sunroof drain tubes to leak water into the passenger cabin and, if so, whether a lawsuit could be filed. A class action could help drivers get money back for repairs and potentially force the manufacturer to provide a free fix for the leaky sunroofs. Before that can happen, however, attorneys need to learn more about the sunroof drain issue and speak with drivers as part of their investigation. So, if you own or lease a 2018-2019 BMW X3 or X5 and had water leak from your sunroof, head on over to this page to share your story and read up on what other drivers are saying about the issue.
Being a new parent is tough enough without having to worry about whether the claims made about certain baby products are legitimate. Now, a new proposed class action is claiming that Angelcare USA and Playtex Products misleadingly advertised their Diaper Genie refill cartridges in that the products do not provide a one-year supply of diaper disposal bags as promised. Specifically, the Diaper Genie refills, which consumers are led to believe can help streamline the diaper-changing process, hold only around 2,160 newborn-size diapers, far fewer than the roughly 3,000 diapers experts estimate a baby will use in their first year, according to the case. The suit looks to represent anyone in the United States who purchased any Playtex Baby Diaper Genie refill product since January 30, 2019. You can read up on the details here.
