Recent news reports that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Nygala Corp. have recently issued a recall for more than 10,000 Halloween Projection Flashlights. According to the articles, the flashlights have a great possibility of overheating and posing threats to consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website posted the announcement last week. All products that are under this recall alert have to be returned to the distributers and should be kept away from others to handle it.
The reports show that the recalled flashlights can overheat leading consumers to being injured. The orange and black recalled items that are made of plastic are sold with different lenses that are attached to the flashlight so several images can be projected. The manufacturer’s codes “HW189”and UPC 677916518266 are printed on the package.
According to the news, discount stores in the States sold the faulty items for $1 between August 2012 and October of 2011.
As an Everett personal injury attorney I incite and hope that all readers of this blog will follow the instructions from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Hopefully, no consumer will be injured because of the use of this product. A personal injury lawyer can always serve as a great assistance to you or a loved one if you were the victim of a company’s negligence and its faulty product.
In a news statement, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in conjunction with Evergreen Enterprises, announced the voluntary recall of the company’s Fireside Gel Fuel Bottles due to the potential burn and flash fire hazards they present to consumers.
This recall affects approximately 23,400 bottles of Fireside Gel Fuel in 30-ounce bottles. The gel fuel was available with and without citronella. They can be identified by the words “Fireside”, “Gel Fuel”, “Evergreen” and “Flag & Garden” that appear on the container labels. The recall only affects the bottles sold in cases of 12. The gel fuel is intended for use in stainless steel or ceramic cups in the center of ceramic and glass firepots for ignition. The gel fuel was available at independent retailer nationwide from December 2010 through September 2011.
The pourable gel fuel was found to ignite without warning and splatter onto people and nearby objects when added to an already-lit firepot. The burn and flash fire hazards exist when the consumer is unaware or unable to see that the firepot is already lit. Neither the CPSC nor Evergreen Enterprises is aware of any injuries that have occurred in connection with this recall.
Consumers are being urged to immediately stop using the gel fuel and return the bottle to the company for a full refund.
