Product Recalls For November 24, 2015

As consumers, you have the right to safe and effective products. You should not have to spend money on an item that can potentially cause you physical harm. At Wyatt Law Firm, we aggressively fight for victims of defective products. That is why we believe you should be informed about the items you purchase. Here are potentially hazardous recalled objects that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) listed. If you own any of these items, we encourage you to return them. If you have been injured because of them, contact our experienced San Antonio product liability attorneys.

On November 24, 2015, the CPSC issued the following product recalls:

  • Phillips Marathon florescent lamps
  • Light up ear plug jewelry
  • 2015 Toro TimeCutter Riding Mowers
  • 2015 Exmark Quest Riding Mowers

DEFECTIVE LAMPS CAUSE COMPANY TO PAY FINES

Phillips Lighting North America Corp. of Somerset, N.J. has agreed to pay $2 million to the government for a civil penalty. According to the CPSC, they failed to report damages and faulty lamps. Companies are required by law to alert the CPSC of any defective products. Consumers who purchased the Phillips Marathon florescent lamps are encouraged to proceed with caution or to return the product. The company has neither admitted nor denied the allegations but agreed to pay the fines.

SALESONE WARNS CONSUMERS OF LIGHT UP EAR PLUG JEWELRY

Light up ear plug jewelry are baubles you put in your ear, that help with stretching the hole. It is coin-battery operated and lights up. However, consumers have reported burn injuries caused by leaking battery acid. The manufacturers encourage consumers to return the product for a new one without the batteries or for a refund.
