Design flaws in gas grills and pacifiers could lead to serious injuries, prompting widespread recalls, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
About 663,000 Perfect Flame SLG Series Gas Grills are being recalled following 40 reports of fires after burners deteriorated and 23 reports of lids catching fire, causing 21 cases of burns to users’ hands, arms or face. In one case, a consumer sustained an eye injury that required surgery.
Separately, about 641,000 pacifiers are being recalled because their mouth guards are too small and could cause babies to choke on them, the CPSC reports.
The Bobby Chupete pacifiers came in aqua, red, white or yellow colors and the picture of an infant is on the original packaging. There were sold at various retail stores nationwide between November 2004 and July 2009 for about $1. For more information, visit CPSC.gov.
