Thousands of GE washing machines that may catch fire recalled

Approximately 222,000 units of washing machines are being recalled by GE Appliances due to complaints that the washer may overheat and catch fire while being used, a September 15 article of cpsc.gov reported.

Reports said at least three models of the “GE Profile” top loading clothes washers have a faulty electronic part that can cause the washer to overheat and catch fire. Though GE Appliances and the CPSC have not received injury complaints, they have been notified of 71 incidents of the washers catching fire, three of which reportedly caused property damage worth $129,000. The recalling company will resolve the problem by providing a free repair in the affected units. Consumers were advised to momentarily avoid using the washer while waiting for it to get fixed.

Thousands of possibly faulty surge protectors that can cause harm recalled in the US

A Salt Lake City-based company on June 9 issued a recall to approximately 9,300 units of surge protectors in the U.S. that may possibly cause harm to intended users, an article of cpsc.gov reported.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recall affects at least three surge protector models of “360 Electrical” that are equipped with non-grounded plugs.

Millions of bicycles in the US recalled over faulty components

At least thirteen companies recently issued a recall of approximately 1.3 million bicycles in the U.S. after one individual suffered injuries caused by a bike with a faulty front disc brake and quick release lever.

The recalling companies will reportedly repair the defective bikes with faulty quick release (QR) levers, as this part may swing open and hit the disc brake rotor, causing accidents. Reports said a man suffered several injuries after the bicycle he was riding either came to a sudden stop or its front wheel suddenly came off during operation.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has listed the thirteen companies affected by the recall on their website and advises consumers to check their bikes to see if they are included in the recall. If so, individuals are encouraged to contact their bike dealer or maker in order to arrange a repair.

Eye and face injuries prompt recall of Lululemon jackets

Approximately 318,000 tops for women, made by Lululemon Athletica, have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada due to drawstrings with metal or plastic tips that can injure consumers, according to the The New York Times on June 25.
