STEP STOOLS RECALL EXPANDED
Target Corporation is expanding the recall of Step Stools with Storage sold exclusively by Target from January 2007 to October 2010.
The wooden step stools can break apart or collapse under the weight of the user, posing a fall hazard.
The Circo step stool has a lid on the bottom step that lifts to provide storage.
The Do Your Room (DYR) step stool has a lid on the top step that lifts to provide storage.
The step stools measure approximately 13” H x 13 5/8” W x 14 1/8” D.
The Circo brand name or DYR brand name and UPC numbers are printed on a label found underneath the step stool.
Consumers should return the stools to any Target store to receive a full refund.
Consumers can also contact Target at 800.440.0680 between 7 AM and 6 PM CT Monday through Friday, or visit www.target.com
Fiskars Brands Inc. is recalling Fiskars® SmartPower™ String Trimmers sold nationwide from January 2011 to July 2011.
Engine vibration during use of the trimmers can cause wear on the fuel line, leading to a propane fuel leak.
In addition, high temperatures may develop near the Curved Shaft Trimmers’ plastic cutting guard, causing the guard to deform and fall off.
These issues pose burn, fire and laceration hazards to the user.
This recall involves the Fiskars® SmartPower™ Propane 4-Cycle Straight Shaft String Trimmer Model 67016935 and SmartPower™ Propane 4-Cycle Curved Shaft String Trimmer Model 67036946.
Both trimmers use propane fuel.
“SmartPower™“ is printed on the lower shaft and near the pull-start handle.
“Fiskars®“ is printed on the engine cover and on the plastic cutting guard.
The trimmers are black, silver and orange.
Consumers should contact Fiskars® at 877.495.6645, or visit www.fiskars.com to receive a full refund.
