Keep reading and we'll give you all the recall details and tell you what your next move is if you have any of these items.
Adjustable desk recall
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an alert that Office Depot is recalling Realspace Magellan Performance electric height-adjustable desks because of a shock hazard.
The alert says to stop using the desks immediately and contact Office Depot for a free replacement control box, which comes with installation instructions.
The desks were sold between April 2017 and February 2019 for about $500. Contact Office Depot at 800-949-9974 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Monday through Friday or visit its website and click recall notices at the bottom of the page.
Sonos speaker wall-mount recall
The CPSC issued a recall alert for Vivo’s Mount-Play5 speaker wall mounts for Sonos speakers, saying the wall mounts can loosen and the speakers can fall, which is a danger to anyone who’s nearby. No injuries have been reported.
About 2,400 units are being recalled. They were sold online through Amazon, eBay, Newegg, Rakuten and Walmart’s websites.
The CPSC says first to remove speakers from the wall mounts, then call Vivo at 800-371-5654 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Central Monday through Friday. The company will send a free repair kit with instructions, or they’ll replace or refund your money.
In-line skates recall
One more alert from the CPSC: K2 inline skates has issued a recall for several models of skates because of a fall hazard.
Save the jokes – yes, every skater is prone to falls. This fall hazard comes from a product defect in the skate axle. The axle can loosen, causing a wheel to separate from the frame.
About 2,700 pairs of skates have been sold. These are the models affected:
- VO2 S 90 PRO M in black, steel and red
- VO2 S 90 PRO W in black and blue
- VO2 S 100 PRO M in black and yellow
- VO2 S 100 X PRO W (Hi Lo) in black and purple
- VO2 S 100 BOA in red and white
You can call K2 Sports at 866-734-5746 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Monday through Friday or email them at email@example.com, or visit its website at www.k2skates.com and click “Safety Alert Regarding the V02 S Skate” for more information.
