Detalles del retiro


This recall involves US 6 (4.0mm diameter) FlipStix in 6” and 8” long knitting needles. The knitting needles have aluminum shafts that are tapered at both ends. The long shaft holds the active (unsecured) stitches of the fabric, to prevent them from unravelling, whereas the tapered ends are used to form new stitches. The knitting needles were sold in blue, red and yellow combination packages. There are five needles per pack.


Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled knitting needles and contact the store where purchased for a full refund in the form of a store voucher.


The firm has received three reports of the needle shafts splitting. No injuries have been reported.
