Biometric Gun Safes
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fortress Safe, of Naperville, Illinois, have issued a recall of approximately 61,000 biometric gun safes due to a significant safety concern and potential risk of harm caused by a programming feature that may allow unauthorized access to the safes.
Users may mistakenly believe they have correctly programmed the biometric feature, but the safe may still be in default mode, potentially allowing unauthorized individuals, including children, to access and remove hazardous contents, such as firearms.
CPSC has been informed of a recent lawsuit claiming that a 12-year-old boy passed away due to a firearm acquired from one of these safes. There have been 39 reported incidents of consumers’ safes being accessed by unpaired fingerprints. 
Consumers are advised to contact Fortress Safes for instructions on disabling the biometric feature and receive a free replacement safe.
Onewheel Electric Skateboards (all models)
If the limits of the skateboards are exceeded, they may stop balancing the rider, which could pose a crash hazard that may lead to serious injury or death.
Future Motion has received numerous reports of incidents involving their electric skateboards, including four reported deaths from 2019 to 2021, as well as injuries such as traumatic brain injury, concussion, paralysis, upper-body fractures, lower-body fractures, and ligament damage. 
The recall includes all models of Future Motion Onewheel self-balancing electric skateboards, such as the Onewheel (original), Onewheel+, Onewheel+ XR, Onewheel Pint, Onewheel Pint X, and Onewheel GT. The model name is displayed on the side of the skateboard. The Onewheel logo can be found on the rail of the skateboards.
STYLR Hair Stylers
The cord on the hair stylers may detach if the unit is dropped, which can pose a risk of electrocution or shock to users.
Consumers are advised to discontinue the use of the hair stylers being recalled. They should contact Solexio, the retailer, or the distributor from whom they purchased the product to obtain a full refund.
Style Selections 42-inch-wide Infrared Quartz Electric Fireplaces
The electric fireplaces have the potential to overheat, presenting a fire hazard.
Twin-Star and Lowe’s have received 24 reports of incidents involving overheating, fire, or smoke. There have been two reports of property damage. There have been no reports of injuries.
Consumers are advised to discontinue use and disconnect the recalled electric fireplace and contact Twin-Star for a refund of the purchase price.

Vaunn Medical Bed Assist Rail Adult Bed Rails
When the bed rails are attached to an adult’s bed, users can become trapped within the bed rail or between the bed rail and the side of the mattress. This poses a significant risk of entrapment and asphyxiation leading to death.
Consumers are advised to discontinue the use of the recalled bed rails and to contact BeyondMedShop for a complimentary repair.
Sleepyhead Loveys and Bandana Bibs
The care instruction label on the Sleepyhead Lovey and Bandana Bib has the potential to detach, which could pose a choking hazard to young children. 
The recall includes the Little Sleepies Sleepyhead Lovey and Bandana Bib. The recalled Sleepyhead Loveys are designed for use by babies and toddlers as a security blanket. The Bandana Bibs that have been recalled are designed for use by babies during mealtime to protect clothing, as well as for drooling or teething babies and toddlers. The products are available in a range of colors and patterns.
Consumers are advised to take immediate action regarding the recalled Sleepyhead Loveys and Bandana Bib. This can be done by removing the care instruction label to eliminate the hazard or, if preferred, by returning the products using pre-paid shipping from the company for a full refund.
ZLINE 30-inch, 36-inch and 48-inch RG gas ranges
The gas range oven can emit hazardous levels of carbon monoxide (CO) during use, which can pose a significant risk of injury or death due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Prior to the recall, ZLINE received 44 reports of carbon monoxide emission, including three reports of consumers seeking medical attention. After the recall was announced, ZLINE received 131 reports indicating that the repair was not completed and that the ranges were still emitting dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
Consumers with an affected range should discontinue the use of the oven compartment, even if they have already had their range repaired as part of the prior recall. Consumers who have received a repair will be contacted by ZLINE for further details regarding the offer of an inspection, a new range, or a refund. Consumers who have not yet scheduled a repair as part of the recall are advised to contact ZLINE for information regarding available remedies.
All models of Rock ‘n Play Sleepers
Infant fatalities have been reported in the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers when infants have rolled from their back to their stomach or side while not properly restrained, or in other situations.
Consumers are advised to discontinue the use of the Rock ‘n Play and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher. Selling or distributing the recalled sleepers is against the law. 
At the time the original recall was announced on April 12, 2019, it was reported that over 30 fatalities occurred in the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers when infants rolled from their backs to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.
Since the recall, there have been approximately 70 more reported fatalities, including at least 8 fatalities that occurred after the initial recall announcement. It has been reported that around 100 deaths have occurred while infants were in the products. According to Fisher-Price, there have been reports where they were unable to verify the circumstances of the incidents or confirm that the product involved was a Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.
YETI soft coolers and gear cases
The magnet-lined closures have the potential to malfunction, causing the magnets to detach. This poses a significant risk of injury or even death if swallowed. When two or more magnets are swallowed, they can attract to each other or to another metal object and become stuck in the digestive system. These complications can include perforations, twisting and/or blockage of the intestines, infection, blood poisoning, and death.
Customers are advised to discontinue the use of the recalled products and contact YETI for a complete refund or replacement item. For instructions on returning the product, visit www.yeti.com. You can choose a suggested replacement product of equal or greater value or receive a full refund in the form of a YETI gift card with an additional $25 value.
Steamfast Home & Away Travel Steam Irons and Brookstone Steam Bug Travel Steam Irons
The power cord has the potential to be damaged near the cord bushing, which could result in overheating of the cord, creating fire and burn risks. Furthermore, cord damage in the vicinity of the bushing may lead to exposed copper wires, which can pose a risk of electric shock.
Vornado has received 50 reports of incidents, including 38 reports of the iron’s power cord showing signs of smoking, sparking, burning, or overheating and 12 reports of cord damage. There have been no reported injuries.
Individuals are advised to discontinue the use of the irons that have been recalled and to visit either the Steamfast or Vornado website to register for the recall and obtain a refund of $19.99.
