Norcross, GA — The presence of mold has prompted a nationwide voluntary product recall of Mizuno Supreme Series and Ballpark Pro baseball and softball gloves by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Mizuno USA Inc. The CPSC announced the product recall on July 6, 2011.
The product recall was issued after discovering that a variety of molds were present in some gloves, which could cause respiratory or other infections in people with chronic health problems or in those with impaired immune systems.
The CPSC reported, “The recalled items are leather Mizuno baseball and softball gloves. The gloves have a sewn-in white label on the heel of the glove with the words “Made in Vietnam” and the model number. Supreme Series gloves affected are further identified by the date code imprinted on the heel of the glove near the thumb opening. “
