Rollerblades with Loose Frames Recalled

On November 9, 2010, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Rollerblade USA recalled around 29,000 Spark and Spitfire rollerblades because of loose wheels or frames. Rollerblade USA received reports of loose bolts in new skates. Loose wheels and frames can cause users to fall and suffer serious injury, says Alan Ripka, Esquire, and the manufacturers are responsible for selling faulty skates.

Rollerblade USA, of West Lebanon, New Hampshire sold these skates at sporting goods stores nationwide and on the Internet from September 2009 through July 2010. The frame mounting bolts and wheel axle bolts can be loose on the following affected skates: Spark Pro, Men’s (SKU# 00792200816), Black; Spark Pro, Women’s (SKU# 007923007E2), Anthracite (Grey); Spark 80, Men’s (SKU# 00702800956), Black; Spark 80, Women’s (SKU# 007029009A6), Anthracite (Grey); Spitfire, Boy’s (SKU# 00705500741), Black; Spitfire, Girl’s (SKU# 007056007Y8), Silver; Spitfire S, Boy’s (SKU# 00705700956), Black; Spitfire S, Girl’s (SKU# 007058009A7), Anthracite (Grey); and Spitfire LX, (SKU# 00705000955), Silver.
