BatteriesPlus Recalls Battery Packs Due to Explosion Hazard
Posted on behalf of Greg Coleman Law on Jan 05, 2012 in Defective Product
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with BatteriesPlus, has issued a voluntary recall for RAYOVAC battery packs due to potential explosion hazards. The replacement battery packs were sold at BatteriesPlus stores and on the retailers website.
There have been reports that the battery packs may have exploded unexpectedly. The recalled battery packs have RAYOVAC and NI-CD written on them and the part number begins with CTL. The battery packs were sold in voltages ranging from 2.4 volts to 18 volts and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The RAYOVAC battery packs are used with cordless power tools for the following brands:
- Black and Decker
Consumers are warned to stop using the battery packs and remove them from their cordless power tools. All recalled battery packs should be returned immediately to BatteriesPlus stores.
If you or a loved one has been injured from a RAYOVAC battery pack, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages. At Greg Coleman Law, we believe that manufacturers should be held responsible for any harm their products have caused.
