Consumer alert: Products recalled in August

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – Attorney General Todd Rokita is alerting Hoosiers of important consumer protection concerns for products recalled in August. Consumers are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities available for those who purchased the recalled items.

“Even though fall is around the corner, there is plenty of warm weather left and that means lots of time spent outdoors. Whether it’s for yard work or to keep kids busy outdoors, Hoosiers need to know if the products they are using are flawed,” Attorney General Rokita said. “Protecting consumers is a priority of my office. If you have difficulty finding a solution for your recalled product, please contact my office immediately.”

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the following consumer products were recalled in August:

Cordless Hedge Trimmers from Makita U.S.A. 

Children’s Outdoor Kitchens from Big Game Hunters
