Top Trenders: 800,000 Baby Monitors Recalled

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 800,000 rechargeable batteries used in Summer Infant video monitors.
Here are your Top Trenders for Thursday, April 24th!

NUMBER 5 - PEOPLE'S MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN
Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o is People Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman of 2014. The actress calls gracing the cover of the magazine a "major compliment." She also says she's happy for all of the girls who will see themselves in her. Growing up in Kenya, Nyong'o says she equated beauty with what she saw on TV, and now she says happiness is the most important thing.

NUMBER 4 - MAN TAKES NAP AT NATIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS MUSEUM
There's increased security at the National Civil Rights Museum in Tennessee, after a man broke in and decided to take a nap. Memphis police say the man got in by throwing a rock through a window. Officers found him asleep in a room just doors down from the room where Martin Luther King Jr. was staying the day he was assassinated in 1968. Authorities say it appears nothing was taken from the museum. The man is charged with vandalism and criminal trespassing.

NUMBER 3 - HAILEY'S LAW
After the kidnapping and killing of a Missouri girl, a Springfield family is pushing for changes they think could help save another child's life. Hailey's Law, named for Hailey Owens, is a bill that aims to speed up the state's Amber Alert system by giving officers better technology to enter crucial information. The family hopes to shave at least half an hour off of the processing time. The bill also requires an annual review of the alert system.

NUMBER 2 - FDA PROPOSES NEW TOBACCO REGULATIONS
The FDA is making another attempt at regulating electronic cigarettes and other tobacco products. The agency is proposing rules that call for strict regulation of e-cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, nicotine gels, water pipe tobacco and hookahs. Currently, the FDA only has regulatory authority over cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and roll-your-own tobacco. The recommendations will be finalized following a 75 day public comment period.

NUMBER 1 - BABY MONITOR RECALL
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 800,000 rechargeable batteries used in Summer Infant video monitors. The batteries can overheat and rupture, posing a burn hazard. Users should remove the battery and contact Summer Infant for a replacement. The monitor can still be used with the power cord. So far, Summer Infant has received 22 reports of overheated and ruptured batteries, including incidents of smoke and minor property damage.
