FIXIT Rechargeable Spotlights recalled after burn injuries reported

Saturday, September 11, 2010By Richard Alexander
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Innovage LLC have announced a voluntary recall of FIXIT One Million Candlepower Rechargeable Spotlights.

The spotlight’s charging adapter can overcharge the battery, forcing it to rupture and leak battery acid causing a chemical burn injury. Innovage has received 13 reports of incidents involving minor skin chemical burns and battery acid burn holes in upholstery, clothing and carpeting.

The handheld spotlight is made of yellow plastic and has a black label that reads, “FIXIT Tools UP TO 1,000,000 CANDLE POWER” or “FIXIT Rechargeable Spotlight.” The spotlight is sold with an AC power charger and a 12 volt car utility adapter.

The spotlights were sold atWalgreens, Rite Aid, Bealls, Tuesday Morning, Ace Hardware, Boscov’s and Winn-Dixie stores nationwide from October 2003 through October 2009 for about $10.

Consumers should immediately stop using the spotlights and contact Innovage for a full refund of the regular retail price.
