Consumer Alert: Products Recalled in October

Attorney General Todd Rokita is alerting Hoosiers of important consumer protection concerns for products recalled in October. Consumers should take full advantage of the solutions available for those who purchased the recalled items.

“Hoosiers need to know if purchased items in their homes are flawed,” Attorney General Rokita said. “This month, several recalled products are home related, and it is important you pay close attention in order to keep you and family are safe. Consumer protection is one of my office’s top priorities. If you have difficulty finding a solution for your recalled product, call my office for help.”  

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the following consumer products were recalled in October:  

Tea Kettles from Target 

Rubber Straps for Swift Bicycle Bags 

Optimus Gemini Portable Gas Stoves from Katadyn North America 

Desk and Storage Units from MillerKnoll 

Snowmobiles from Bombardier Recreational 

Children’s Sleepwear from Ekouaer 

Scuba Diver Buoyancy Compensator Devices from Cressi-Sub USA

E-Bikes from Ancheer 

Outdoor Freezers from U-Line 

Magic Chef Air Fryers from Newair 

Children’s Rings from U.P. Fashion

If you believe you purchased a recalled product, stop using it and check its recall notice (linked above for all products). Follow the notice’s instructions, including 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.
