Fitbit fitness bracelets recalled because of irritants

Posted under Product Liability

Fitness bracelets used to catalog daily physical activity have been recalled by the manufacturer for causing skin irritation and infection.

The recall affects the Fitbit Force wristband. After conducting multiple tests, the company’s CEO James Park explained that some consumers had adverse skin reactions from the nickel and other components found on the device’s strap.

Fitbit said they will stop selling the affected products and ask consumers to return the product for a refund or exchange.
