A line of baby walkers and children's coats and jackets that fail to meet federal safety standards are among this week's recalled consumer products.

Here's a more detailed look:

BABY WALKERS

DETAILS: BebeLove walkers that were sold for babies age 6 months or older. The walkers contain a plastic- covered foam padded seat with a plastic base and toy tray. Model 358 walkers have a green, pink or orange musical tray with a white toy bar and solid color seats. Model 368 walkers have green, pink or white musical tray with a yellow toy bar and printed patterned seats. Both models have white stoppers on the bottom of the base of the walker and model numbers printed on a label on the rear bottom inside of the base. "BEBELOVE" is printed on a label on the seat back and on the base of the walkers. They were sold in small retail stores in Arizona, California and Utah and online at Amazon.com and Overstock.com from November 2011 through July 2013.

WHY: The walkers failed to meet federal safety standards. Specifically, style number 358 can fit through a standard doorway and is not designed to stop at the edge of a step as required by the federal safety standard. Style number 368 contains leg openings that allow the child to slip down until the child's head can become entrapped at the neck. Babies using these walkers can be seriously injured or killed.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 3,600.

Style number KMCBJ410 is a belted, double-breasted, French coat style white garment with faux fur around the neck. Style KMCBJ421 is fuchsia or purple and has a button closure, plus snap button pockets on each side. The style number can be found on the back of the sewn-in neck label. They were sold at Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide and online at Burlingtoncoatfactory.com from September 2011 through September 2013.

WHY: The jackets have drawstrings in the hood around the neck area that pose a strangulation risk for young children.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 820.

"Lion Force" is printed on the upper left side of the front of the coat and on the sewn on tag at the back of the neck. This recall involves boys' coat sizes 4 through 12. They were sold at Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide November 2010 through September 2013.

WHY: The jackets have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation risk for a child.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 2,400.

FOR MORE: More information can be found through the Consumer Product Safety Commission at http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2014/Lion-Force-Recalls-Boys-Puffer-Coats/ or by calling their consumer hotline at 800-638-2772.

BICYCLES

DETAILS: The recall includes 2012 and 2013 Cervélo P5 bicycles equipped with 3T Aduro aero handlebars. "P5" is on the seat tube, "Cervélo" is on the top tube and a large "é'' is on the down tube in white lettering. The handlebars consist of four major components: a base bar, which attaches to the bike; a forward extension mount, which attaches to the base bar; forearm rests and forward extension bars, which attach to the forward extension mount. The base bar is black with red and white stripes and has "3T" on the top and rear. The handlebars come with both a high and a low forward extension mount, one of which will be installed based on customer fit. Consumers can purchase an ultra-low forward extension mount separately. The words "Ultimate Performance" are on the forward extensions. The handlebars were made between January 2012 and July 2012. Serial numbers for the handlebars are on a label inside the base bar under the stem cap on the rear wall. The serial number is the seven-digit number following "FM78-Basebar-." The manufacture date code is the first four digits of the serial number in the MMYY format. Date codes for the defective handlebars range from 1201 to 1207. P5 bicycles which have already been inspected and passed at retailers are distinguished by a green sticker with an "é'' on the underside of the Aduro base bar. They were sold at Cervélo retailers nationwide from May 2012 to August 2013.

WHY: The forward extension mounts can detach from the base bar while riding causing the rider to lose control, posing a risk of injury.

INCIDENTS: 28 reports of incidents, including one report of a broken collar bone and four reports of abrasions.

HOW MANY: About 1,300 in the U.S. and about 225 in Canada.

Model number 31411 is printed on the back of the package on the bottom right side of the UPC label. "100 Musical Lights" is printed on the front of the white cardboard packaging. The model number, voltage and "Made in China" are printed on a label affixed to the light string. They were sold in Pepe Ganga and Compra De To stores in Puerto Rico from December 2011 to October 2012.

WHY: The light string can overheat and catch fire.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 500.
