1 Million Rechargeable Spotlights Recalled

. By
Washington, DCAbout 1.4 Million FIXIT One Million Candlepower Rechargeable Spotlights are being recalled because the spotlight's charging adapter can overcharge the battery, forcing it to rupture and leak battery acid. This poses a chemical burn hazard to consumers.

The importer of the product, Innovage LLC, of Foothill Ranch, CA, has received 13 reports of incidents involving minor skin chemical burns and battery acid burn holes in upholstery, clothing and carpeting.

This recall involves the One Million Candlepower Spotlight, a rechargeable halogen light. 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 product was sold at Walgreens, Rite Aid, Bealls, Tuesday Morning, Ace Hardware, Boscov's and Winn-Dixie stores nationwide from October 2003 through October 2009 for about $10.
