Table Saw Recalled Due to Laceration and Impact Hazards

On August 19, 2015, Grizzly recalled table saws due to laceration and impact hazards. The products in question are Grizzly 10-inch hybrid table saws. The hazard involved is actually the motor pulley coming loose and hitting the table saw blade. This causes the blade teeth to break into flying metal fragments, which pose a risk of laceration or impact injury to consumers.

About 1,240 units were part of this recall. It involves Grizzly 10-inch hybrid table saws with the model number G0771. The Grizzly logo, model number, serial number, and date code involved are printed on the side of the table saw’s enclosed white metal base.

As far as incidents and injuries are concerned, the firm has received two reports of incidents with the table saws. This includes one report of a 46-year old man who suffered a broken nose and lacerations when he was hit by flying pieces of the table saw.

To remedy the situation, consumers should immediately stop using the recalled table saws and return them to Grizzly for a full refund, free repair, or a free motor pulley kit that can be installed by the consumer. Grizzly is contacting consumers who bought the recalled table saws directly. The number to contact is 800-523-4777.

These products were manufactured in China and were sold at Grizzly’s showrooms, in their catalogs, and on their website specifically. They were sold from January 2015 through May 2015 for about $625.

Temodar and Temozolomide Bottles Recalled Due to Failure to Meet Child-Resistant Closure Requirements

On August 18, 2014, bottles with cracked caps containing Temodar and Temozolomide (generic) capsules were recalled due to the fact that the bottle cap could be cracked. This means that the child-resistant closure could become ineffective to young children who could unfortunately gain unintended access to the capsules. A risk of poisoning could be a result.

About 276,000 units were a part of this recall. This drug is an oral chemotherapy drug with capsules distributed in 5- and 14-count brown glass bottles. They have white plastic child-resistant caps. A white label affixed to the bottle has the word “Temozolomide” printed in black lettering.
No incidents or injuries have been reported. To remedy the situation, consumers should immediately inspect their bottle caps for cracks. If a crack happens to be found, consumers should contact Merck for a replacement cap at Merck Information Center 800-943-8069 from 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday. As with all drug products, the bottles should be stored up high, out of sight and reach of young children. Consumers may continue to use the drug as directed.

Clinics and pharmacies sold these drugs nationwide as a prescribed medicine from July 2013 to August 2015. The container was included in the cost of the medication, which is based on quantities prescribed, health insurance terms and other factors involved. They were manufactured in the United States.
