A toaster that can leak electrical current and inline skates whose wheels can separate are among the most recent consumer product recalls.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission last week announced Bodum’s recall of its bistro toasters that can leak electric current when operating at the maximum normal temperature, posing a shock hazard to users.
The company has received eight reports of shocks when touching the toaster in Canada, though there have been no reports of injuries in the United States.
The recall involves two models of the toasters, with one being the two-slice model and the other being the four-slice model. The toasters were sold at home appliance stores and online at Amazon and other websites from September 2018 to June 2019.
Consumers should stop using the toasters and return them to the place or purchase for a full refund or contact Bodum at 833-722-6386 to receive a prepaid mailer to return the toaster for a full refund.
K2 Sports is recalling its VO2 S inline skates because the skate axle can become loose or a portion of the axle can sheer off during use, resulting in a wheel separating from the skate’s frame.
The company reported receiving four incidents of loose axle hardware, though no injuries have been reported.
For model names and item numbers, check out the commission’s website at www.cpsc.gov. The skates were sold at specialty stores and online on K2 Sports’ website from January to May.
Consumers should stop using the skates and contact the store or K2 Sports at 886-734-5746 to return the skates for a free repair.
The commission also announced the recall of Vivo’s Mount-Play5 speaker wall mounts. The ledge on the front of the speaker wall mount can loosen, allowing both the ledge and speakers to fall.
The company has received three reports of the speaker mounts breaking and speakers falling to the floor. No injuries have been reported.
The wall mounts brackets were designed to secure the Sonos Play 5 speakers and were sold online at Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Newegg and Rakuten from March 2018 to June 2019.
Consumers should immediately remove their speakers and contact Vivo at 800-371-5654 to receive a free repair kit and instructions, or a replacement wall mount. Consumers can also return the wall mount for a full refund.
Factory Direct Wholesale is recalling its folding mattress because the mattress fails to meet mandatory federal flammability standards for mattresses. No injuries or incidents have been reported.
The mattresses, which can be used as a chair or bed, were sold in twin, full and queen sizes. For model numbers, check out the commission’s website. The mattresses were sold online at Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Newegg, Rakuten and Wish from April 2018 to January 2019.
Consumers should stop using the mattress and contact the company at 800-631-0449 to receive a free cover, including shipping. The cover will bring the mattress into compliance with federal standards, according to the commission.
Epic Business Service is recalling its Majestic Pure Wintergreen Oil because the package is not child resistant, as is required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
The essential oil was sold online at Amazon from June 2016 to April 2019. No incidents have been reported.
Consumers should store the product in a safe location, out of reach of children, and contact the company at 888-995-8495 to receive a free, replacement child resistant dropper.
