Rollerblade Recall Issued Due To Defective Frames

A recall has been issued for roughly 11,800 pairs of Rollerblades, due to a risk of problems with the inline skates where the mounting holes in the boot and frame may be misaligned, potentially posing a fall hazard for consumers.

The Rollerblade recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 25, impacting the Tempest Inline model of skates.

Although no injuries have been reported in connection with the Rollerblades to date, the manufacturer has acknowledged that a defect in the skates may cause the boot to separate from the frame, which may cause users to fall.
