Recently recalled consumer products

Consumer products are recalled nearly every week. This means that consumers are often put at risk of harm, many times without even knowing it. This is wholly unacceptable. The first way for Minnesotans to protect themselves from these dangerous products is to be aware of which products are being recalled and why.

Recently, several consumer products were recalled for potential safety hazards. Franklin has recalled its Power reclining furniture, stating that a switch on the furniture can increase the risk of fire due to overheating. The product was sold nationwide in 2013 and 2014. The company Snow Peak has also issued a recall pertaining to its Japanese Axe M, sold across the country in 2013 and 2014. The recall is due to the axe handle's potential to crack, which could cause the axe head to come loose and cause a laceration or impact injury.

Felt Bicycles has recalled its Felt Cruiser bikes, citing that the brakes may become nonfunctional, creating the potential for a wreck. These products were sold across the U.S. from 2014 to 2015. Lastly, IKEA has expanded a recall of its crib mattresses under the model names of SULTAN and VYSSA. These products pose the risk of creating gaps in the crib that could cause entrapment. The mattresses were sold across the country from 2000 to 2014.

Those who have these products should contact the companies listed to ensure they receive an adequate replacement or refund. Those who have been injured by these or other dangerous and recalled products may want to consider their legal options. An experienced attorney may be able to help those who suffer a consumer injury file their claim and fight the negligent company who put them in harm's way.
