More than 170,000 rechargeable power banks used for smart phones and tablets are being recalled over a fire hazard.
The power banks can overheat, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
There have been three reports of the chargers overheating, including one incident where CPSC says a house caught fire and caused up to $150,000 in property damage.
The products came in a variety of colors and shapes, including a unicorn head, a cat with sunglasses, and a rainbow between two clouds. The items were sold at Burlington, Kohl’s, Ross and other stores nationwide from November 2016 through January 2019 for about $25.
Officials say consumers should immediately stop using the recalled power banks and contact Daniel M. Friedman & Associates to return the product for a full refund.
