Recalls this week: Emergency systems, chargers

By
From page B12 | June 22, 2014 |

A line of personal emergency systems with a potential battery defect are among this week’s recalledconsumer products. Others include chargers that pose an electrocution hazard and glider rocking chairs that can be unstable.

Here’s a more detailed look:

PERSONAL EMERGENCY SYSTEMS

DETAILS: Linear PERS transmitters, which are components of Linear PERS or personal emergency solutions products and allow users to push a button on the transmitter to summon assistance. The recall includes model numbers DXS-62A, DXS-62A1, and DXS-64 which all have batteries that are sealed into the products. The manufactured date range of the recalled products is from June 2008 through April 2011 written as a date code. For example the date code MD1105 represents YYMM format or a manufacture date of May 2011. The date code, model number, Linear LLC and other information are found on the back of the transmitter. They were sold from June 2008 through July 2011.

WHY: The batteries used in the transmitters can fail to emit a low battery warning, leading the user to believe the transmitter is functioning, and not generate a warning.

INCIDENTS: One report of a transmitter that failed to operate. No injuries have been reported.

HOW MANY: About 175,000, with an additional 48,000 previously recalled in December 2013.

FOR MORE: Call Linear at 855-554-2384 or visit www.linear-pers.com and click on Recalls for more information.

CHARGERS

DETAILS: Travel Charger Kits for Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablets, also called the AC-300 charger accessory kit. The kit includes four different plugs for use in electrical outlets in the U.S., U.K., EU, and Australia. U.S. chargers that were sold with the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet are not included in the recall. They were sold at AT&T and Verizon Wireless authorized dealers and retailers nationwide and online at att.com and Verizon.com from January to May.

WHY: The plastic cover on the charger’s exchangeable plugs can come loose and separate, exposing internal components that pose an electrocution hazard if touched while the plug remains in a live socket.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 500.

FOR MORE: Call Nokia at 888-665- 4228 or visit www.nokia.com and click “Recall Notice” at the bottom of the page for more information..

GLIDER ROCKING CHAIRS

DETAILS: Brooks Furniture Glider Rockers, including styles 1529P and 1529V-LM. The 1529P glider rocker has a maple wood frame with blue fabric upholstery. The 1529V-LM glider rocker has a maple wood frame with beige vinyl upholstery and a locking mechanism to disengage the glider. Both recalled chairs have the style number and manufacture date between 1/1/2011 and 12/31/2012 printed under the chair’s seat. Brooks Furniture is printed on a label attached to the seat cushions. They were sold at Kaplan Early Learning Co. nationwide from October 2011 to December 2012.

WHY: The spindles in the glider base can separate while rocking, posing a fall hazard to the user.

INCIDENTS: 29 reports of the chair’s spindles separating or loosening on the base of the glider rockers. No injuries have been reported.

HOW MANY: About 350.

FOR MORE: Call Brooks Furniture at 800-427-6657 or visit www.brooksfurnitureonline.com and click on “Recall” for more information.

GOALTENDER THROAT COLLARS

DETAILS: Reebok TCPRE Senior and Junior Goalie Throat Collars. The word “Reebok” is embroidered at the base of the collar. They have the BNQ certification mark screen printed and the words “Ballistic Nylon Ballistique”, “TCPRE SR or JR” and sizing information on the right side of the collar base. Affected products have the model number K101SR TCPRE or K101JR TCPRE located on the label sewn on the inside of each throat collar pad and on the outside of a polybag in which the product may have been sold at retail stores. They were sold from April 2012 through May .

WHY: Throat collars have been decertified by BNQ in Canada due to the risk that a skate blade could penetrate the collar, posing a laceration hazard to the throat.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 3,300 in the U.S. and 8,100 in Canada.

FOR MORE: Call Reebok-CCM at 800-451-4600 or visit www.reebokccm.com and click on Goalie Throat Collar Recall at the bottom of the page for more information.
