MIM-PI USA LCC, of Orlando, Florida, today issued a recall of their girls’ hooded sleeveless vests. This recall affects about 80 units.
The vests pose a safety hazard due to the drawstring through the hood, which can strangle a child. In 1996, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released guidelines to companies with suggestions on how to avoid strangulation hazards in garments.
Luckily no injuries were reported and the recall is in response to fears of potential injury.

Eastwind Industries Inc., of San Leandro, California, has issued a voluntary recall, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, of their Kuuma IR Stow and Go barbecue grills. This recall encompasses around 5,000 grills sold so far.
The reason for this recall is due to a number of reports of leaking propane tanks, leading to fires and minor burns.
This fire hazard comes from an incorrect installation of the fuel container, which can lead to leaks when it is not fully threaded onto the regulator during installation. Responsibility for this lies with Eastwind Industries because their installation manual inaccurately depicts how the fuel container should be attached.
Consumers should immediately cease use of the grill and contact Eastwind Industries for a newly revised graphic manual depicting how to properly install the fuel container as well a number of tools for doing so.
