Consumer alert: Products recalled in May

Attorney General Todd Rokita is encouraging Hoosiers who purchased consumer products that were recalled in May to take advantage of the remedies available. Consumer education and making the public aware of faulty products is an important aspect of the work of the Indiana Attorney General’s Office to keep Indiana residents safe. 

“If you purchased or have received one of these recalled products, know that there are protocols in place to seek a fair resolution,” Attorney General Rokita said. “If something you recently purchased is defective, don’t hesitate to act. Find out what the company that made the product is offering as a solution and take advantage of it.”

The following consumer products were recalled in May, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

Peloton Tread+ Treadmills

IKEA Bowls, Plates, and Mugs

John Deere Gator Utility Vehicles

Polaris RZR Recreational Off-Road Vehicles  

TJX Infant Sleep Bags

Scott Fetzer Consumer Multi-Use Water Pumps

Kolcraft Inclined Sleeper Accessory

Signature Hardware Towel Grab Bars

TJX Outdoor Wooden Folding Chairs

Kidde TruSense Smoke and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms

CFMOTO All-Terrain Vehicles

Briggs & Stratton YTL, Longli and TIYA Log Splitters

K & M International Slap Watches

Alliance Chemical Sodium Hydroxide Products

The Lye Guy Sodium and Potassium Hydroxide

BRP Snowmobiles

Leisure Time Brutus Swing Sets

Cheyenne Folding Chairs and Barstools

Pro Supply Outlet Sodium and Potassium  

If you believe you purchased a recently recalled product, stop using it. A recall is generally issued when there is a concern that there is an unreasonable safety risk or failure of a product to adhere to minimum safety standards or regulations. Once you’ve discontinued use, check its recall notice (linked above for all aforementioned products) and follow the notice’s instructions. Generally, the instructions will include directions about where to return the product, how to get the product fixed, how to dispose of the product, how to receive a refund for the product, or what steps must be taken to receive a replacement product.

To view recalls issued prior to May, visit the Consumer Protection Safety Commission website.
