Here at John D. Giddens P.A. we will keep you updated on recent product recalls and provide you with enough information to identify the products even if you don’t remember the exact model number.
This week we have three recalls and reasons:
1. Big Lots Recalls Glider Recliners with Ottomans Due to Entrapment and Finger Crushing Hazards, http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml12/12019.html
These recliners which were sold at Big Lots have been recalled. If you or a loved one owns these chairs seek out more information on returning them.
An exposed gap between the moving parts of the chair and the base framework can allow access to toddlers and infants, posing an entrapment hazard. In addition, other exposed moving parts on the chair and the ottoman can pose finger pinching and crushing hazards to older children and adults.
2. Evergreen Enterprises Recalls Pourable Gel Fuel Due to Burn and Flash Fire Hazards,http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml12/12020.html
The pourable gel fuel can ignite unexpectedly and splatter onto people and objects nearby when it is poured into a firepot that is still burning. This hazard can occur if the consumer does not see the flame or is not aware that the firepot is still ignited. Gel fuel that splatters and ignites can pose fire and burn risks to consumers that can be fatal.

3. General Electric Recalls Gas Rangetop with Grill Due to an Explosion Hazard,http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml12/12021.html
Burners on Rangetops operating on liquefied petroleum (“LP” or propane) may fail to ignite or light if the gas control knob is left in a position between OFF and LITE, posing a risk of delayed ignition or explosion.
