According to the CPSC Mizuno USA Baseball and Softball Gloves Recall Release, the molds that were found in some of the gloves “could cause respiratory or other infections in individuals with chronic health problems, or in individuals who have impaired immune systems.” The gloves that are being recalled are the Supreme Series and Ballpark Pro. Fortunately, no injuries or illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall. As a Pembroke Pines Accident Lawyer, I think that the large number of gloves that need to be recalled could unfortunately still pose an injury risk. It is very difficult to alert 131,000 people of an issue that they aren’t expecting to hear about.
For those who think they might have purchased these products, they were sold at Walmart and Target from April 2010 until May 2011. From the perspective of Pembroke Pines Injury Attorney, I think that as long as no one gets hurt from this recall, that Mizuno should be able to move on from this without taking too big of a financial hit. Obviously, the cost of recalling and refunding 131,00 gloves is expensive, but the costs of a potential personal injury lawsuit would be much, much greater.
