Recall Round-Up: September 13, 2019

 

Our Recall Round-Up this week features major recalls from product manufacturers Whirlpool, Beaufort Bonnet and STIHL, and the retailer Kirkland’s.

  • Kirkland’s Chest of Drawers

    Major retailer Kirkland’s recalled 3,000 Black Wash Mirrored Chests and Six-Drawer Camille Chests due to a potential tipping hazard. IKEA came under fire the past few years due to the same hazard. If the chests aren’t anchored to the wall, they pose a serious risk of tipping over, entrapping, and seriously injuring or causing the death of children. Consumers should move the chests to a room away from children and either return the item to Kirkland’s for a refund or contact customer service at 877-541-4855 to receive a free wall anchor kit.

  • STIHL Mowing Heads

    STIHL voluntarily recalled 73,000 Polycut Mowing heads due to a potential injury risk. The mowing heads are attachments to the STIHL-brand trimmers, brushcutters, and clearing saws and were sold at authorized STIHL dealers from July 201-July 2019. According to the manufacturer, the bolts connecting the blades and holding the mowing head together can come apart and potentially injure the operator or bystanders. STIHL received 28 reports of loose bolts with 2 instances of injury. Consumers should return the mowing heads to the place of purchase for a full refund.

  • Whirlpool Glass Cook top

    Whirlpool recalled over 26,000 glass cook tops due to a potential burn hazard. The manufacturer received 133 reports of the cook tops turning on by themselves with 14 reports of heat damage to items nearby and 2 reports for burn injuries. The glass cook tops were sold under the brand names Whirlpool, JennAir, and KitchenAid and were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Best Buy and other similar home improvement retail stores from March 2017 to August 2019. Whirlpool asks consumers to turn off the circuit breaker when not in use, and contact the custom service team at 888-900-7897 to schedule an installation for a complimentary replacement cook top.

  • Beaufort Bonnet Company Dolls

    The Beaufort Bonnet Company recalled 4,500 of their handmade knit dolls due to a potential injury hazard. The Beaufort Bonnet Company received one report of a sewing needs found left in the stuffing of their dolls and chose to voluntarily recall 22 styles of their handmade dolls sold online from September 2016 through August 2019. These dolls are styled and named according to animal themes. Consumers should immediately stop using the dolls and contact customer service at 833-964-1456 to receive a full refund on a gift card towards a future purchase.
