Recall Round-Up: February 21, 2020

This edition of Recall Round-Up covers several product recalls for infants and children, a ceiling fan, and three popular off-road vehicles.

  • Contigo Children’s Water Bottles

    Contigo announced a second recall of their popular children’s water bottles. A previous recall in August 2019 claimed the silicone spout on the water bottle could detach and become a choking hazard. At the time, 5.7 million water bottles were recalled and replacement lids were issued for consumers. Now, it seems, the replacement lids did not solve the problem and Contigo has announced a secondary recall of the original 5.7 million products and their new lids. The manufacturer urges consumers to immediately stop using the product and request a complete replacement by calling 888-262-0622 or visiting www.gocontigo.com/recall for more information.

  • Infantino Infant Carrier

    Infantino recalled 14,000 infant carriers due to a potential fall hazard. The Go Forward 4-in-1 Evolved Ergonomic, Flip Front2back and Up Close Newborn infant carriers have buckles that can break and potentially cause an infant to fall and be injured. Infantino did not received any injury reports prior to announcing the recall. The infant carriers were sold at Target and online at Amazon.com from November 2019 through December 2019 for between $30 and $50. Consumers should immediately stop using the carrier and contact Infantino at 800-840-4916 or visit them online at www.infantino.com for more information on how to receive a free replacement.

  • Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan

    Fanim Industries recalled 70,000 of their popular branded Harbor Breeze ceiling fans due to an injury hazard. According the manufacturer, the blades of the 48-inch Santa Ana fan can come lose and detach during operation. Fanim Industries received 210 reports of the fan blade breaking or ejecting from the fan, including 10 injury reports. The fans were sold exclusively in Lowe’s stores and online May 2014 through January 2016 for about $150. Consumers should stop using the fan and contact Fanim at  888-434-3797 or online at www.fanimation.com for complimentary replacement fan blade holders.

  • Textron Specialized Off Road Vehicles

    Textron recalled more than 20,000 specialized vehicles due to a potential fire hazard. The gas powered E-Z-GO, Tracker, and Cushman off road vehicles have a starter generator wire that can be improperly secured, allowing it to come into contact with the vehicle’s exhaust and pose a fire hazard. The vehicles were sold at E-Z-GO, Cushman, and Tracker off road dealerships nationwide from November 2018 through October 2019 for between $6,300 and $13,400. Textron asks consumers to stop using the vehicles and contact them at 888-525-6040 or visit the individual brand websites E-Z-GO, Cushman, or Tracker for more information on how to schedule your free repair.
