In at least 15 recorded instances, the potty-training device WeePOD Basix and/or WeePOD Toilet Trainer Squish, made by Prince Lionheart Inc, has resulted in toddlers having their genitals lacerated or damaged during use. The injuries have included serious injuries up to permanent erectile dysfunction.
Despite having knowledge of the incidents, Prince Lionheart has refused to recall or warn its customers about the approximately 650,000 defective products in circulation that are being handed down from family to family in households throughout the United States. To this day, the company’s refusal continues even though Prince Lionheart has redesigned the defect and substantially changed the warnings on its new products.
Kristensen Weisberg, LLP believes there could be thousands more children with injuries caused by these products that remain undiagnosed.
Kristensen Weisberg, LLP, and Carpenter Zuckerman & Rowley, LLP filed a Class Action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
In July, our efforts resulted in the TARGET CORPORATION agreeing to remove WeePOD Basix and the WeePOD Toilet Trainer Squish from store shelves. Price Lionheart has stopped selling the WeePOD Basix, but they have refused to recall the over 500,000 of these defective products that are still sitting in homes throughout North America.
We have filed individual cases, including the bellwether John Doe I, et al. v. Prince Lionheart that is scheduled to start trial on October 22, 2018 in Riverside Superior Court in Riverside, California.
It is our goal to have all WeePod Basix products recalled to prevent any further harm to children.
