A camping and outdoor company issued a voluntary recall for 8,500 units of flashlights in the U.S. and Canada due to faulty batteries that may cause the flashlights to catch fire, an April 12 article of cpsc.gov stated.
Reports revealed Coleman’s CTAC Lithium-Ion Flashlights have batteries that may overheat and catch fire. Coleman has not received notice of any incidents of injury involving the affected products, however, they were notified of two incidents of the flashlights emitting too much heat and causing some property damage. At least three flashlight models have been found to be faulty and consumers may look for the model number printed on the upper part of the flashlights’ handle. Consumers who might have a recalled flashlight are advised to immediately return it to the store at which it was purchased for a refund.
