Home alignment machines are not exactly the most practical of home appliances, but the Felting Machine at the center of a recent lawsuit from the American Home Appliance Association (AHA) is getting an upgrade to allow it to align a standard 12″ x 12″ home to a 4′ x 4′ area.
The Felting machine was originally manufactured in 2007, but has since been updated with an electronic control panel that can be connected to the internet and automatically adjust the alignment of a standard 10″ x 10″ home.
A recent lawsuit filed by the AHA and its partners argues that the device’s use in the U.S. is dangerous because it creates a “fractured, non-surgical” home, and that it “produces a hazardous chemical that can contaminate or cause serious injury.”
As part of its defense, AHA said that it has “conducted a thorough investigation into the Felts’ safety” and that they are “fully compliant with federal safety regulations and applicable legislation.”
This is a very minor issue compared to the more serious concerns over the Felt-in-the-middle issue that’s already been raised.
AHA did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
