Thousands of Dunkin’ Donuts tumblers with injury risks recalled

A January 10 posting on cpsc.gov revealed that an estimated 8,300 units of glass tumblers were voluntarily recalled by Dunkin’ Donuts due to concerns that they could cause laceration or burn injuries to intended consumers.

According to the recall notice, at least three different styles of the glass tumblers, which can contain 16 ounces of a hot or cold beverage, may unexpectedly break or crack during use. Consumers who might have the possibly defective tumblers may sustain laceration and/or burn injuries if it suddenly breaks while being used. The recalling company and federal authorities have not received any injury complaints, but there were 19 cases of tumblers unexpectedly getting damaged. Consumers were advised to bring back the faulty tumblers, which cost around $13 to $15, to Dunkin’ Donut stores to get their money back.

Charges filed against suspected reckless driver after mishap in Tennessee

A suspected reckless driver, who authorities believed was under the influence of intoxicants (DUI), was recently charged in La Vergne after he got involved in a mishap where his vehicle caught fire, a December 27 article of wate.com reported.

Reports revealed that alongside the DUI, 24-year-old Spencer Rhodes was also charged with reckless driving and felony reckless endangerment after he broadsided a vehicle on Interstate 24 West. At around 3:00 a.m., the state highway patrol was notified of a vehicle driving the opposite lane moments before the mishap. Rhodes’ vehicle reportedly caught fire in the vicinity of Waldron Road exit. Dispatchers told reports that Rhodes had traveled as far as 12 miles in the wrong-way before the fire broke out. Traffic flow on the affected roads in I-24 was restored after few hours.
