Trio of February Recalls Highlight Dangers of Defective ProductsFebruary 25, 2015
February has been a busy month for product recalls. Here we take a look at some of the more high-profile recalls of the past few weeks. As product liability lawyers, we encourage you to stay abreast of the latest product recalls via Recalls.gov, a free consumer resource.
Canadian manufacturer Electrolux has recalled about 3,000 Sears Kenmore 24-inch electric ranges due to a heating element defect. The recalled ranges, sold in Sears and Kmart stores from April 2014 until October 2014, pose an electrical shock hazard to consumers.
KTM North America has recalled over 3,000 of its KTM and Husqvarna brand “Enduro” motorcycles because of a crash hazard. Faulty front fork pistons can cause the driver to lose control of the off-road vehicle, posing a safety threat to both the driver and others in the area. Sold between June 2014 and October 2014, the recalled models should not be driven until their dangerous defect is repaired.
Scott USA has recalled nearly 1,500 Vanish Evo bicycle helmets for failing to meet the CPSC’s impact requirements for bicycle helmets. Sold from July 2014 through December 2014 as a safety device, Scott USA’s recalled helmets may fail users in the event of an accident, potentially resulting in serious personal injury.
