ATV and yarn recall
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

A.t.v.'s are extremely popular in Rhode Island. But now, suzuki is recalling 30-thousand of them.

Water can enter the throttle lever case and freeze causing it to become stuck and fail to return to the idle position...if this happens, the atv will not slow down and the rider could lose control. Suzuki is asking all consumers to stop using their atv's and contact a local dealer for a free repair.

They're all the rage, those scaves and sweaters made out of this particular kind of yarn...but Bernat is recalling 730-thousand balls of yarn after it was determined that "fur out" yarn is dangerously flammable when exposed to a flame.

The company has already received two reports injuries with one person suffering from singed eyebrows. Retailers nationwide sold these blenders from December of 2003 thru January 2005.

Consumers are being asked to stop using them immediately and contact the company for a free replacement blade.
