Officials with the Consumer Product Safety Commission are warning users to avoid using a recently released prostate exam app because of safety concerns. The Boldfinger consists of both the app program and a four-inch long plastic finger that connects by wire to the phone or iPad.

"There have been several instances in which the plastic and vinyl index finger has become detached from the device while it was in use," said commission spokesman Maury Galfooga, who stated that most victims were able to remove the detached finger with the help of a friend or loved one. "Some people were able to pull it out themselves using a coat hanger or needle-nose pliers, but others aren't that flexible," said Galfooga.

A Boldfinger spokesman said the company has fixed problem and emphatically requested that consumers DO NOT return defective products to them. "We don't want the used ones. Just keep it and we'll mail you a new one," he said.
