Evenflo issues recall of 56,000 child seats due to harness problem

Miamisburg, Ohio-based children products manufacturer Evenflo Co. Inc. has recently issued a recall for 56,000 child safety seats due to the danger of children being able to loosen the seat’s safety harness, which could possibly lead to injury in an accident.

The Transitions Three-in-One Combination Booster Seats manufactured between Dec. 18, 2014 and Jan. 29, 2016 are involved in the recall due to the accessibility of the adjustment button, which releases the harness, to children. According to Evenflo, the danger of accident is only possible when the seats are used as forward-facing harnessed boosters.

Evenflo became aware of the issue in late January 2016 upon analysis of consumer feedback. The company is undergoing the process of notifying owners of the recall and sending them a kit with a new seat pad and front adjuster assembly.

Woman sues pill manufacturers after developing hepatitis

Everine Van Houten, a 33-year-old Hawaii resident, filed a lawsuit against USPlabs LLC and GNC Holdings Inc., alleging that she developed hepatitis after ingesting a defective dietary supplement that they manufacture.

The dietary supplement, OxyELITE Pro is marketed as an aid to weight loss and muscle enhancement. According to her lawyer, Van Houten reportedly started experiencing fatigue, nausea, and abdominal pain one month after ingesting OxyELITE Pro.

Hawaii’s Health department has ordered pharmaceutical stores to discontinue sales of OxyELITE Pro. According to GNC officials, 25 of their Hawaii stores complied with the health department’s directive. Additionally, USPLabs has issued a voluntary recall of the product.
