Car Chargers for Halogen Spotlights Recalled

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Car Chargers Used with Power System Plus 3 Million Candlepower Spotlights

Units: About 210,000

Importer/Distributor: International Merchandising Service Inc. (IMS), of Fullerton, Calif.

Hazard: The car charger is incompatible with the spotlight’s battery, which can cause it to overcharge inside of a vehicle and pose a fire or burn hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: IMS has received two reports of incidents of spotlights overheating while being charged with the car charger. No injuries have been reported.

Description: The recalled 12V DC car charger was sold with the Power Systems Plus/UST 3 Million Candlepower Spotlight with model number HSLR30S. The spotlight is black and blue and has a sticker on each side that reads “3 Million Candle Power.” “HSLR30S” is printed on the instruction manual and on the packaging.

Sold at: Sears and K-Mart retail stores nationwide from October 2007 to June 2008 for about $20.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled car charger and contact IMS for information on how to receive a free replacement car charger. Consumers can continue to use the spotlights without the car charger.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact IMS toll-free at (866) 797-2738 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, visit the company’s Web site at http://usttools.com/recall, or write to IMS Inc., 1927 W. Malvern Ave., Fullerton, CA 92833 ATTN: RECALL PROGRAM.
