Sevca LLC. is issuing a defective product recall for 94,000 Sevylor Tow Behinds with Quick Hitch connectors. According to a news report in Consumeraffairs.com, the Quick Hitch, which connects the towable to the boat, can break and project pieces of the plastic Quick Hitch back to the boat. If this happens, individuals can be struck and there is the potential for serious personal injury. The company has apparently received one report of a boat occupant being struck by a piece of Quick Hitch still attached to the towrope. This product recall involves Sevylor Tow Behinds with Quick Hitches manufactured between 2005 and 2009. These defective products were made in China and sold in department and retail stores nationwide from January 2005 through December 2008 for between $50 and $240.
