Consumers who purchased the Fitbit Force fitness tracking bracelet are reporting serious rashes, burns, or blisters on their skin. As a result, Fitbit CEO, James Park, issued a voluntary recall of the Fitbit Force and stopped the sale of the device as of February 20, 2014. A nationwide recall was later announced on March 12, 2014 after consumers made hundreds of injury reports to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The Fitbit Force is a silicon wristband that tracks the wearer’s movement data, such as steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled, and sleep patterns. Since the beginning of 2014, Fitbit has received over 10,000 reports of significant skin irritation, rashes, or blisters appearing on the area of the skin that has come into contact with the bracelet. Although the cause of these injuries is still under investigation, the manufacturer claims they are the result of an allergic reaction to the materials used in the bracelet.
The recall involves all Fitbit Force bracelets with the following model numbers:
The model number can be found under the charging port on the back of the device.
WHAT TO DO
If you have suffered burns, rashes, blisters or skin irritation after wearing the Fitbit Force, you may be entitled to damages and a full refund for the purchase price of the Fitbit. Please call the law firm of Nurenberg Paris immediately.
