About 78,000 Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gyms, made in China and imported by Nautilus Inc., are being recalled because of problems with the seat rail. If the seat rail isn't manually latched, it can fall unexpectedly on the user or a bystander, posing a risk of serious injury. The company has received 18 reports of injuries caused by unlatched seat rails that have fallen, resulting in head and shoulder wounds, some requiring stitches or staples. The home gyms were sold at specialty fitness retailers nationwide and through direct Nautilus sales from June 2005 to January of this year. Information: www.cpsc.gov.

The recalled waffle makers were sold at Williams-Sonoma stores around the country, as well as through the Williams-Sonoma catalog and website, from March 2008 to January 2009.
