Top Recalls to Be Aware of for July 2018

A new batch of recalls has been released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the FDA. If you have any of the following products or gifted them to someone, follow the instructions for securing a replacement, repair or refund.

1. Children’s Sleepwear

Children’s sleepwear is to meet federal flammability standards. Sleepwear manufactured by Allura has not met those standards and has been recalled. If you have one of the two sets of sleepwear involved in the recall, take it away from the children it belongs to and contact Allura at (866) 254-3103.

The company is offering a refund for the approximately 64,000 sets of sleepwear sold. Consumers can also email the company’s customer service department at [email protected] for more information.

2. Snowboard Boots

Snowboard boots are worn to keep you safe and on your board. Boots manufactured by Burton have been shown to unexpectedly release from their binding. If this occurs, the rider can fall.

If you have Burton boots, you should contact the company at (800) 881-3138 or email [email protected] to find out if they are a pair that has been recalled. There were approximately 4,800 pairs sold.

3. Avalanche Transceiver

People who climb snow-covered mountains and those that ski or snowboard often carry avalanche transceivers. These devices are meant to transmit the location of survivors in an avalanche. ORTOVOX has recalled one of their devices because of a software error.

The units may not transmit the location of users. If you have purchased one of these transceivers, call (877) 384-9252 or email [email protected] for more information about a free repair.

4. Prescription Medications

Both Sandoz and Novartis have recalled prescription medication contained in blister packs. There is not an issue with the medication itself but with the blister packaging. The packaging is not child resistant, which poses a risk to little ones in the home.

The companies are telling people that they can still use the medication but should put it out of sight and reach of children. Consumers can call (888) 669-6682 with any concerns.

5. Baby Brussels Sprouts

PictSweet has recalled their 12 ounce Steam’ables baby Brussels sprouts. 960 cases of the vegetable are affected because they may contain soy and milk allergens. People who are allergic to milk or soy could have an adverse reaction if they consume the Brussels sprouts.

Consumers should not eat any kits purchased and all affected items have been removed from the shelves. Call (800) 325-7894 for more information if you purchased one of the kits from an ALDI in North Carolina.

7. Barbeque Potato Chips
