CPSC, Fleetwood EXIM Inc. Announce Recall of Cigarette Lighters

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fleetwood EXIM Inc. of Grenada, Miss., is voluntarily recalling about 950,000 disposable cigarette lighters. The lighters have child-resistant mechanisms that do not work. Young children could ignite the lighters, presenting fire and burn hazards.

CPSC and Fleetwood EXIM Inc. have not received any reports of injuries. This recall is being conducted to prevent that possibility of injuries.

The disposable cigarette lighters being recalled are oval tube shaped with a roll and press type ignition mechanism. The lighters have a blue, orange, red or clear transparent case and a chrome metal windshield surrounding the flame port. Stamped into one side of the windshield is the brand name "youjie". A warning label on the back of the lighters reads in part, "WARNING: KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN" and "MADE IN CHINA".

Convenience, gas, and grocery stores in the southeastern region of the U.S. sold the recalled cigarette lighters from June 2000 through February 2001 for about $1.

Consumers should stop using the lighters immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information, call Fleetwood EXIM toll-free at (888) 251-5252 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
