Recall of thousands of outdoor flashlights that may catch fire
Wichita-based outdoor accessories company Coleman is recalling an estimated 8,500 flashlights that may cause burn injuries to intended users as it suddenly catches fire, an April 12 report of cpsc.gov stated.
According to the recall, the lithium-ion batteries of Coleman “CTAC Lithium-Ion Flashlights” may produce excessive heat and eventually catch fire. Though Coleman has not been notified of any injuries, two complaints involving the recalled flashlights were related to property damage. Consumers are advised to look for the model number printed on the handle of the 6.5 inch flashlight to find out if it is part of the recall. To address the issue, Coleman is instructing consumers to return the recalled products to receive a refund.
