Rollerblade USA Recalls Rollerblade Inline Skates That Pose a Fall Hazard
Rollerblade USA is recalling approximately 11,800 pairs of Rollerblade Tempest Inline Skates. The mounting holes in the boot and frame can be misaligned causing the boot to separate from the frame and posing a fall hazard.
The recalled Tempest skates are high performance training or racing skates sold in a variety of color combinations. They contain silver frame mounting bolts that attach a boot to an aluminum frame that holds four wheels. The brand name 'Rollerblade' appears in several locations on each skate. The model name 'Tempest' appears on the back of the cuff and the model number appears on the side of the heel of each skate.
The rollerblades affected by this recall were sold at Blades, Paragon, Peter Glenn, Play it Again, Summit Sports and other sporting goods stores nationwide, and online from December 2010 through January 2014.
Consumers should immediately stop using the skates and contact Rollerblade USA for a free inspection and free replacement if the mounting holes on their skates are misaligned.
