The news spreading all over the country claims that a recall was announced for the Schwinn Elliptical Exercise Equipment. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission along with the company responsible for the manufacturing of the recalled product, released a joint recall alert according to the news.
The official announcement shows the recalled exercise equipment was distributed by Nautilus Inc. of Vancouver, Washington. The company stated that the item demonstrated malfunctioning issues related to the footplates. The article states that the plaques have a great possibility of coming detached from the rest of the equipment posing a fall hazard to users.
Elliptical Exercise Training equipment was linked to nine accident reports including a particular complaint from an user who struck his knee after the footplate detached from the rest of the equipment, he was using the product when the accident happened. A personal injury lawyer could be highly helpful at this moment.
The USCPSC said that over 10,000 units should be recalled. The product has the name Schwinn 460 and is made of gray anodized aluminum.
As an Everett personal injury lawyer, I urge all owners to contact Nautilus for the free repair kit they’re entitled to. According to the manufacturer, an extended warranty will be given to all owners of the Elliptical Exercise Training units.
According to the Washington State Patrol and local news sources, a 10-year-old boy from Vancouver was struck by a vehicle’s side mirror on Highway 14.
The reports from the authorities show that the boy was struck while in the median of Highway 14, close to the Lieser Road. The kid stepped into traffic Sunday, some time after 11:20 a.m. when a 2003 Oldsmobile going westbound on Highway 14 hit him. The vehicle was driven by a woman also from Vancouver.
Officers from the Washington State Patrol claim that the boy suffered an injury on his right arm and cheek. The authorities have informed news outlets that the boy’s father took him to the hospital right away and that no other injuries were reported.
As a Vancouver personal injury lawyer I hope all drivers will be extremely careful when it comes to watching the road for unattended children, wildlife and stopped vehicles. I wish the boy who suffered this minor accident will recover quickly.
I sincerely hope that this may serve as an alert to all parents, hopefully they will educate their children about pedestrian and road safety.

In a press statement, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in conjunction with General Electric Appliances, announced the recall of the GE Monogram Pro Rangetop with Grill due to the risks of delayed ignition and explosion that they pose to consumers.
This recall was initiated after it was discovered that the burners, which operate on liquefied petroleum (LP), might fail to ignite or light if the gas control knob is positioned between the OFF and LITE settings. This poses a risk of delayed ignition or explosion to consumers. The affects grill units are either 36 or 48 inches wide and feature a stainless steel finish and the GE Monogram badge on the front of the unit. The front control panel overhangs the cabinet and contains the burner control knobs. Only LP models and natural gas models that have been converted for use with LP are affected by this recall. GE is planning to notify known owners of these units and provide free repair to individuals that have converted their Rangetop Grills to LP. These grills were available through GE authorized representatives and distributors nationwide from May 2008 until August 2011.
GE has been informed of six incidents involving explosions with LP operating grills, including damage to kitchen cabinets beneath the grill. No fires or injuries have been reported.
As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen similar recalls in past and know the very real dangers these defective products present to consumers. If you’ve been injured through the use of a defective product, call a personal injury lawyer in your town to discuss your rights as a consumer.
In a press release, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Target retail stores, announced the voluntary recall of frog masks designed for children because they lack adequate ventilation and pose a significant suffocation hazard to children.
This recall affects roughly 3,400 frog masks designed for children. The recall was initiated after the CPSC noticed that the plush frog mask featured two eyeholes, but no source of ventilation for the child’s nose or mouth. This design presents a significant suffocation hazard to children. The plush green frog masks are green and yellow with red highlights and were available at Target stores nationwide between August and September of this year. They can be identified by their UPC code of 06626491474, which can be found on the label attached to the mask.
Consumers are being urged to immediately remove the mask from children and return them to any Target store for a full refund. Neither the CPSC nor Target has received any reports of injury in relation to this recall.
As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I’m relieved to learn that no children have been reported injured in relation to this defective children’s product. If you’ve been injured through the use of a defective product, contact a personal injury lawyer in your town to learn more about your rights as a consumer.
