Approximately 25,400 charging kits with universal serial bus (USB) connectors that are used to recharge Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod devices were recalled. This recall involves seven models.
The recalled kits were sold under the Ban.do, Jonathan Adler and Lilly Pulitzer brand names and contained a wall charger, a 12 to 24-volt car charger, a 30-pin USB cord and a Lightning port adapter. The wall chargers are plastic cubes about 1 ¼ “ long, 1” wide and ½ “ tall with two metal prongs for plugging into an electrical outlet on one end and a USB port on the opposite end. Ban.do wall chargers are yellow and black with white stripe. Jonathan Adler wall chargers came in multicolor and blue and white patterns. Lilly Pulitzer wall chargers came in multicolor floral patterns.
Brand names are on the top front of the packaging and on the Lightning port adapters. Model names are on the bottom front of the packaging.
Lifeguard Press has received six reports of the wall chargers emitting smoke and sparking and six reports of prongs detaching from the plug. No injuries have been reported as of today.
Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the USB wall charger and contact Lifeguard Press to return the charging kit for a full refund.
These products were sold at Dillard’s, Lilly Pulitzer, Nordstrom’s and independent boutiques nationwide from February 2014 to June 2014 for between $25 and $30.
