Thousands of rechargeable battery packs with fire risks recalled

Posted on April 20, 2016 2:54 pm under Product Liability

An estimated 1,050 units of outdoor rechargeable battery packs in the U.S. are being recalled by a Louisville-based company after they received complaints that the battery packs could catch fire, an April 19 article on cpsc.gov reported.

According to the recall, the lithium ion polymer in the Brunton Outdoors rechargeable battery packs could catch fire if it emits too much heat while in charging mode. The recalling company is aware of two instances of property damage caused by the faulty battery packs, one of which was estimated at $25,000. Thankfully, there were no reported injuries from the two complaints. Aside from various outdoor stores and online shops in the U.S., the recalled battery packs, which were made in China, were also sold in Canada.
