Sevca Recall Tow Behinds Because Quick Hitch Connectors Can Break. Sevca, LLC of Wichita, Kansas, has recalled about 94,000 Sevylor® Tow Behinds with Quick Hitch Connectors, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.

The recalled Sevylor® Tow Behinds with Quick Hitch Connectors were manufactured by Shanghai Suofeng Plastic Metal Manufactures Co., Ltd., in China. The recall was issued because the Quick Hitch, which connects the towable to the boat, can break and project pieces of the plastic Quick Hitch back towards the boat. If this occurs, an individual can be struck and seriously injured.

To date, Sevca LLC has received one report of an occupant of a boat being struck by a piece of the Quick Hitch still attached to the towrope.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using their recalled Sevylor® Tow Behinds with Quick Hitch Connectors and contact Sevca to receive instructions on how to remove the Quick Hitch from their tow behind and use the tow behind without the Quick Hitch.

In recent years, imports from China have been at the center of safety worries in the United States and other countries. For instance, there was a heparin contamination with a counterfeit ingredient that was implicated in dozens of deaths in the U.S., and hundreds of serious reactions both here and abroad. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also issued recalls of several foods imported from China that may have been tainted with the industrial chemical melamine. Melamine tainted dairy products hospitalized thousands of children in that country.

We have also long been reporting that despite federal lead standards and that many consider lead poisoning to be one of the most important chronic environmental illnesses affecting children today, toys—many imported from China—continue to be made with elements that exceed federal standards and that could pose serious, sometimes fatal, health concerns.
