The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced a recall affecting two models of Champion Power Equipment portable generators sold at Costco stores due to fire hazards. The CPSC issued the recalls due to fuel leaks from some carburetors posing a serious fire risk. Both Champion Power Equipment models affected by the recall feature a back frame with yellow and black control panels, a bar handle and two wheels. Costco estimates that around 8,600 of the faulty generators have been sold exclusively at their stores throughout the U.S. from December 2011 through July 2012 for around $699. The models affected by the recall include number 41332 and number 41532.
In a move that surprised James O. Cunningham and other Orlando product liability lawyers, stroller manufacturer Kolcraft, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), recently issued a voluntary recall of more than 36,000 strollers due to an amputation hazard. The recall affects 36,000 Kolcraft strollers sold in the U.S. and another 270 sold in Canada. According to the CPSC report, the fingertips of at least three children have been amputated and two adults suffered smashed fingers when they locked or unlocked the hinge mechanism on Kolcraft Contours Options strollers. The mechanism is used to adjust the handlebars on the strollers, and users’ fingers can be smashed or cut deeply by the metal.
