Court Upholds Secrecy in Product Safety Lawsuit

First legal test of Consumer Product Safety Commission's new database is a flop

The First Amendment gives citizens very broad rights to publish information about other citizens, about the government and about private companies.While ...

PhotoThe First Amendment gives citizens very broad rights to publish information about other citizens, about the government and about private companies.

While publishers may later face civil lawsuits for slander and defamation, it is very unusual for courts to bar publication in advance -- a practice known as prior restraint.

No such protection applies to government agencies, however. After all, the First Amendment and the rest of the Bill of Rights were written to protect against government, not to protect government itself.

This does not stop goverment agencies from acting as publishers, but it puts them in a shaky position when challenged, as the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is learning, now that a federal court has sealed all details of a lawsuit filed by an anonyous company against the agency, preventing the public from learning not just the details of the lawsuit, which concerns an injury allegedly caused by a defective product but also seals from public view the name of the company involved.

"Interestingly, although the CPSC has no First Amendment rights in this situation, it's the public and the press who will exercise those rights to vindicate the CPSC's interests," said Cameron Stracher, a New York City attorney who represents ConsumerAffairs and other publishers.

Blacked out

The court’s opinion, released earlier this week with key portions blacked out, indicates that the case, originally filed in October 2011, was decided in the company’s favor more than two months ago after nine months of proceedings conducted out of public view and without opportunity for public participation.

The unusual secrecy -- more befitting a classified military document than a product liability case -- is bringing howls of protest from consumer organizations, including Public Citizen, Consumer Federation of America and Consumers Union, which are appealing the decision.

The decision not only prevents the public from seeing the company’s name and relevant court findings, it also bars the CPSC from posting to its online consumer complaint database the report of consumer injury about which the company sued.

“Adjudicating this first-ever challenge to the consumer product safety database in secret, based on secret evidence, and with a secret plaintiff, is at odds with the First Amendment and our tradition of open judicial proceedings,” said Scott Michelman, the Public Citizen attorney representing the three organizations. “The public has a strong interest in the outcome of this lawsuit and a correspondingly strong right to learn who is involved and the factual basis for the court’s decision to exempt a product report from the database.”

Searchable database

The CPSC’s searchable online database, available at www.saferproducts.gov, was launched in March 2011 to provide consumers with information about potentially dangerous products after a spate of product recalls. Nearly 9,000 reports had been filed as of June 2012.

Privately-operated publishers, like ConsumerAffairs, display hundreds of thousands of consumer reviews and complaints. Although lawsuits have occasionally resulted from publishing such complaints, no court has ever restrained publication by ConsumerAffairs in advance.  Although settlements of such suits are sometimes sealed, the initial proceedings remain public, a ConsumerAffairs official said. 

“The court blocked the CPSC from publishing a report of harm, but the facts underlying the decision are entirely blacked out,” said Rachel Weintraub, director of product safety and senior counsel for Consumer Federation of America. “The court’s seal prevents the public from assessing the court’s reasoning, and understanding its impact on the integrity of the CPSC database.”

The CPSC database is modeled after databases on the websites of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, created in 1996 to provide access to consumer complaints about automobiles, and the Food and Drug Administration, also available since 1996, which describes adverse event reports made by hospitals, manufacturers and others about drugs and medical devices.

The CPSC is required by law to post consumer complaints within 20 business days of receiving them. Before complaints are posted, the product manufacturers are notified and given a chance to respond. If the information submitted is shown to be untrue, the complaint is corrected or removed from the database.

“The CPSC database is a critical tool for informing consumers and consumer advocates about potential safety concerns related to a wide variety of products,” explained Ami Gadhia, senior policy counsel for Consumers Union.

PhotoDorel Juvenile Group of Columbus, IN, is recalling about 97,000 Eddie Bauer rocking wood bassinets.

The bottom locking mechanism can fail to lock properly if a spring is not installed, allowing the bassinet to tip to one side and causing infants to roll to the side of the bassinet. This poses a suffocation hazard to infants.

The company has received 17 reports of incidents with the recalled bassinets involving infants primarily younger than three months old. In two of the incidents, infants were reported to have had breathing difficulties after they rolled into the side of their bassinets.

The bassinets have a dark brown wooden headboard and footboard and a cotton bassinet that comes in a variety of colors and patterns. "Eddie Bauer" is printed on a metal plate on the bassinet's footboard. These bassinets have a dial at the base of the footboard that locks and unlocks the rocking motion of the bassinet.

Recalled bassinets have the following model numbers: 10632, 10639, 10832, 10835, 10839 and BT021. The model number is located under the mattress, on the top surface of the mattress support board or on the wash and care label.

The product, manufactured in China, was sold at Target, Toys R Us and Sears stores nationwide and online at eBay and other Websites from December 2007 through January 2011 for about $150.

Consumers should stop using the recalled bassinets immediately and contact Dorel to obtain a free repair kit, which includes a spring and new instructions for assembly.

Consumers may contact Dorel toll-free at (877) 416-0165, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

PhotoJELD-WEN of Klamath Falls, OR, is recalling nearly 171,000 JELD-WEN and Reliabilt Interior Bifold Doors.

The door's lower pivot pin can break causing the door to disengage from the overhead track, posing an impact hazard.

The company says it is aware of 12 incidents of broken pivot pins causing the bifold doors to disengage from the overhead track -- including three incidents involving minor injuries.

The recalled molded white panel and flush natural wood grain bifold doors run on upper tracks and lower pivot pins.

PhotoBEF Foods of Columbus, OH, is recalling approximately 1,768,600 pounds of Bob Evans Maple Links and Maple Patties because they are misbranded in that they contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is not declared on the label.

The products subject to recall include:

  • 12-oz. packages of “Bob Evans Maple Links” with UPC numbers of “075900002300”, “075900000085” and “075900002324.”
  • 12-oz. packages of “Bob Evans Maple Patties” with UPC numbers of “0759000025028” and “075900000795” and “075900002522.”

The products were produced in Hillsdale, MI and Xenia, OH, between April 4, and Oct. 19, 2012, and have the establishment number “M-952” or “M-6785” inkjetted on the side of the package. Product purchased fresh will have a use-by date between Oct. 14, 2012, and Dec. 4, 2012, listed. Instead of a use-by date, frozen products may be identified by any of the following Julian codes: 0264 through 0365, 1001 through 1365, and 2001 through 2293.

The problem was discovered by the company during a label audit. When the company reformulated their products, it discontinued the use of a spice blend containing MSG and removed MSG from the ingredient list on the label.

There is a potential risk of the product igniting on the skin if contact is made with a source of ignition before the product is completely dry.

Energizer says it believes the problem is associated with the product delivery system -- specifically the size of the spray valve opening on the affected product, which dispenses more than is typical in the industry for continuous sun care sprays.

As a result, the product takes longer to dry on the skin than is typical with other continuous sprays. If a consumer comes into contact with a flame or spark prior to complete drying of the product on the skin, there is a potential for the product to ignite.

Energizer is notifying its retail partners to stop selling the product.

The company says it has received four reports involving burns associated with the use of the Banana Boat SPORT Ultramist SPF 30 and 50 products in the U.S., and one in Canada. Energizer says it believes it has identified the cause of this safety concern and expects to offer new Banana Boat continuous spray products shortly.

Consistent with existing warnings on all continuous spray suncare products, consumers should take care to avoid sources of ignition when using these products, should not smoke while using these products and should not use these products in the presence of a flame or spark.

Consumers who have purchased any of the above listed products are advised not to use them. Those with questions or complaints regarding can contact Energizer by calling Consumer Affairs at 1-800-SAFESUN (1-800-723-3786) Monday through Friday, 8:00AM to 7:00PM Eastern, or by sending an email to: SUNCARE@customerfollowup.info.

These over-the-counter products were distributed nationwide to wholesalers and retailers from January 2010 through September 30, 2012.

PhotoFord is recalling 154,604 model year 2011-2013 Fiesta vehicles, manufactured from November 3, 2009, through September 21, 2012, which fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

The passenger side curtain air bag will not deploy in the event of a side impact collision when the front passenger seat is empty. Although the side curtain air bag system was designed to suppress the side curtain air bag under this scenario, that information is not explained in the owner's guide for these vehicles as required by FMVSS No.208.

An occupant in the right rear seating position will not have coverage from the side curtain air bag in a side impact collision when the front passenger seat is empty, increasing the risk of injury to the right rear occupant.

Ford will notify owners and dealers will reprogram the vehicle's software free of charge so that it no longer suppresses the passenger side curtain air bag when the front passenger seat is empty, and consistent with the description in the owner's guide.

The safety recall is expected to begin shortly. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

PhotoFitness Anywhere of San Francisco is recalling about 40,000 Suspension Trainer devices. The strap length-adjustment buckles can break, posing a fall hazard. 

The company has received 570 reports of the buckles breaking with 82 reports of the user falling, including 13 reports of head, face, shoulder and hip injuries. 

This recall involves older model "Professional" (P1) and "Tactical" (T1) TRX Suspension Trainer devices manufactured in China between January 2006 and July 2007. The recalled products' anchor straps are yellow or khaki nylon with a carabiner at the top end and a black nylon loop on the bottom end.

PhotoAtomic Aquatics of Huntington Beach, CA, is recalling about 4,200 Cobalt dive computers -- 4,000 of them in the U.S., and 200 in Canada. 

The unit can leak and cause the lens of the computer to blow off suddenly, which could result in impact injuries, and can cause a gas leak, posing a drowning hazard. 

The firm has received 23 reports of leaks caused by the lens being forcefully expelled from the computer due to excess air pressure inside the computer. No injuries were reported. 

This recall involves Atomic Aquatics brand Cobalt dive computers. These handheld, console-style dive computers have LCD screens and four magnetic control buttons located below the screen. A fitting at the bottom of the computer connects to the high pressure hose of a scuba diving regulator. The name Atomic Aquatics logo is imprinted on the front of the console, below the screen. 

The recalled products can be identified by the manufacture dates, which are determined by the first four numbers of the serial number with the first two digits signifying the week of manufacture (01 through 52) and the second 2 digits signifying the year of manufacture (10, 11 or 12). The dates of manufacture are between May 31, 2010 and April 16, 2012. Serial numbers, 2210-XXXX through 1612-XXXX, can be found by scrolling to the "System Info" screen on the computer. 

The recall affects all Cobalt computers with serial numbers that start with any of the following numbers: 

  • 10 Series: 2210, 2910, 4010, 4710, 5010
  • 11 Series: 1111, 1711, 2611, 2811, 3211, 3311, 3411, 3511, 3611, 3711, 3811, 3911, 4011, 4111, 4211, 4511, 4611, 5211
  • 12 Series: 0812, 1112, 1212, 1312, 1412, 1612  

The computers, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at authorized Atomic Aquatics dealers from November 2010 through July 2012 for about $1200. 

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dive computers and return the unit to either an authorized Atomic Aquatics dealer or the Atomic Aquatics factory for inspection and repair.

Honda Recalling Certain Acuras and Accords

Possible leakage of power steering fluid could cause an underhood fire

PhotoHonda is recalling nearly 626,000 vehicles including the model year 2007 and 2008 Acura TL and model year 2003-2007 Accord V6 vehicles. 

This past May, Honda filed a defect report to recall certain model year 2007 and 2008 Acura TL vehicles. In September, the automaker informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it was including an additional 573,147 vehicles including certain model year 2003 through 2007 Accord V6 vehicles. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 625,762. 

Prolonged under-hood and power steering fluid temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate prematurely, resulting in cracks and power steering fluid leakage. If this occurs, power steering fluid can leak onto a hot catalytic converter, leading to smoke and possibly an under-hood fire. 

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will install a new heat resistant power steering hose, free of charge. The original recall began in June 2012, and owners of those vehicles may obtain the free remedy. 

Sufficient parts are not yet available for owners of the vehicles covered by the September 2012 expansion, but are expected to be available in early 2013. Honda will notify owners of these vehicles beginning on October 26, 2012, and will notify these owners again when parts are available so those vehicles can be brought to dealers for applications of the free remedy. 

Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
