A Potential Burn And Injury Hazard

When people go out and buy products, they do so under the assumption that those items are safe. Most of the time, that notion holds true. Consumers purchase and use goods with no issues arising. Instead, the things do the jobs they were made to do, and that's the end of the story. Unfortunately, some individuals don't get off quite so lucky, though. Rather, they get their hands on defective products that leave them with severe injuries like:

  • Fractures/Broken Bones

  • Soft Tissue Injuries

  • Lacerations And Contusions

  • Burns

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries

Obviously, these are only some examples of injuries that can come to be because of defective products. There are many others where these come from, so don't be surprised if you get hurt in a different way if a flawed item enters the picture in St. Petersburg. Why are we telling you this? It has come to our attention that there are defective products on the market that could be dangerous to children. So, please read on to learn more and protect the kiddos you know.

Sound Compression Ear Muffs

Parents and guardians go out of their way to protect little ones. They do what they can, including when it comes to their hearing. As such, many people have bought youngsters sound compression ear muffs over the years to shield their little eardrums from loud noises. There's certainly nothing wrong with that, as these folks are only doing their duty. However, did you purchase a set of Children’s HearMuffs between January 2018 and December 2021?

If that's the case, you should make it a point to stop the recipient from using them immediately. Hearing Lab Technology/Lucid Audio has received 19 reports stating that the AAA alkaline batteries used to power the ear muffs ruptured. So far, no damages have been declared, but it could be just a matter of time before users sustain hearing, projectile, and/or burn injuries.

If you're wondering, approximately 31,150 of these products were sold at Sam’s Club, Kroger, and other stores nationwide. Not to mention, the devices could be purchased online for between $30 and $40 too. Thus, they can now be located just about anywhere, even right here in St. Petersburg. The models in question include:

  • LA-infant-AM-WH

  • LA-infant-ASM-WH

  • LA-infant-ASM-WHPlus

  • LA-kids-AM-WH

So, take the time to see if you purchased these sound compression ear muffs. Then, take them away from the child or children you gave them to and contact Hearing Lab Technology LLC/Lucid Audio LLC, of Fort Worth, Texas, to determine how to remedy the situation. There's no time to waste when the safety of children is the primary concern.
