CPSC, Sears Announce Recall of Glue Gun

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sears Roebuck and Co., of Hoffman Estates, Ill., is voluntarily recalling about 33,000 Craftsman glue guns. These glue guns can overheat, presenting fire and burn hazards to consumers.

CPSC and Sears have not received any reports of injuries. This recall is being conducted in order to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The recalled glue guns were sold in Sears Craftsman Instant-On Bonder Kits, and included glue sticks, a silicone mat, and a black plastic case. The glue gun is black with a red trigger, and bears the Craftsman logo on one side. The other side has a label which reads in part, "Craftsman Glue Gun 526.804420" and "Caution: Nozzle and Glue Can Cause Burns."

Sears, Orchard Supply and QVC sold the glue guns nationwide from October 2000 through March 2001 for approximately $20.

Consumers should stop using the glue guns immediately and return them to the place of purchase or their nearest Sears store for a full refund. For more information, consumers can call Sears toll-free at (866) 222-0016 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
