Mizuno USA Inc. Recalls Baseball and Softball Gloves Sold at Two Major Retailers, Due to Presence of Mold

HARTFORD, July 7 -- The Department of Consumer Protection is alerting consumers about today’s voluntary recall of some baseball and softball gloves by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Mizuno USA Inc., of Norcross, Georgia.


About 131,000 Mizuno baseball and softball gloves are being recalled because some gloves were found to contain a variety of molds that could cause respiratory or other infections in individuals with chronic health problems, or in individuals who have impaired immune systems. The gloves were sold at Wal-Mart and Target stores nationwide from April 2010 through May 2011 for between $24 and $60.
