July Recall Roundup – Twist’n Explode

In this month’s Recall Roundup: electronics short out and catch fire, little girls’ aqua shoes don’t grip as well as one might think,  digital camera battery packs bite back, and someone thought that “Twist’n Sparkle” was a good product name. More like “Twist’n Explode.”

    I used the Twist’n Sparkle thingie for months without anything exploding. I hope they fix whatever was wrong & start selling it again soon, because it’s great for making fizzy water.

    Amazon not only refunded me the $$ I spent on the Twist’n Sparkle itself, but also everything I spent on the cartridges from day 1, which I’m pretty sure they didn’t have to do.

    I’m waiting for someone to ask me for a picture of my pet maned wolf.

    My sister has those aqua shoes from Old Navy and the first time the 2 yr old wore them around the pool she slipped every third step, good thing she’s still in diapers! But my sister already thought they were a piece of junk. Hopefully she still has them so she can take em back!

      Those aqua shoes are really cute! Too bad about the complete lack of usabilty.

        For real. The minute she got out of the pool to walk around , boom she fell, got up tried to walk, boom down again. It would have been safer to have her barefoot.

    So, it wasn’t the bad tacos I had for dinner last night!

  5. PragmaticGuy says:

    Who here doesn’t think a BATH FAN would be a fire hazard. And what yokel at Lowe’s thought it was ok.

  6. IraAntelope says:

    why would any fool expect that any parent would want flamable pajamas for a child?

    I used to work at hardware store that sold all kinds of feed.

    I still remember the first time I heard them call out two bags of “Monkey Chow”.
