Safety alert issued over headlamps due to burn hazard

Friday, September 19, 2008

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a safety alert Thursday for a brand of headlamps because of a burn hazard.

If the headlamp is used with rechargeable batteries, the cable connecting the battery pack to the lamp can spark, melt or catch fire.

There have been 13 reports in the United States of sparking and melting, with two reports of flames. One consumer received a minor burn to the hand and another experienced singed hair.

About 322,000 of the headlamps were sold across the U.S. at specialty retailers from February 2003 through August 2008 for between $40 and $80 US each.

This safety alert involves the “MYO” and “MYO Belt” brand headlamps.

The “MYO” headlamps have a battery pack attached to the headband. The “MYO Belt” headlamps have a remote battery pack attached to the headlamp via a long electric cable.
