As first reported Wednesday in a PPB Newslink Breaking News alert, Montreal, Quebec-based supplier Spector & Co. (PPAI 168328), in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, has issued a voluntary recall of power bank chargers that have shown they can overheat while charging and pose a fire hazard. No property damage, fire damage or injuries have been reported.
Between May 2016 and January 2019, approximately 4,500 T119 Elf 2200 mAh power bank chargers were sold in the U.S. and 2,600 were sold in Canada. The power banks were distributed as promotional products at various meetings, trade shows and industry conventions.
