Fire safety: More product recalls

by Levin & Perconti

1. Fire Suppression System Pumps: ITT Water Technology has voluntarily recalled about 3,000 Goulds Pumps, Bell & Gossett and Red Jacket Water Products Brand Pumps for Fire Suppression Systems. A mechanical part on these pumps was not fully secured, which can lead to the pump failing during use and an increased risk of fire damage. For more information.
2. Notebook Computer Batteries: Sony Energy Devices Corp has voluntarily recalled about 340,000 batteries. These lithium ion batteries can overheat, posing a fire hazard. For more information.
3. Mattress Covers: Dux Interiors, Inc. has voluntarily recalled about 37,000 Protective Mattress Covers. The terry cloth covers, which were made to fit over the Dux top pads, do not meet federal standards for flammability under the Flammable Fabrics Act. For more information.
