CPSC, Hammacher Schlemmer & Co. Announce Recall of Lighters
PRODUCT: Butler's Slim Torch - Hammacher, Schlemmer & Co., Inc. of
Chicago, Ill., is voluntarily recalling approximately 3000 Butler Slim
Torches. The recalled lighters have a brushed chrome finish and a black
rubber slide lever that is moved to ignite the lighter. They are seven
inches long and "Rowenta" is embossed on the rubber slide lever. The
lighters come packaged in a black plastic case with "Rowenta" stamped on
the bottom of the case. The Hammacher Schlemmer® catalog sold the
lighters nationwide between August 2001 and February 2002 for $39.95.
The lighters were manufactured in Germany.
PROBLEM: The lighters were imported into this country without first
being tested to ensure they comply with the Consumer Product Safety
Commission's requirements that the lighters be child-resistant. Child-
resistant requirements were adopted to reduce the risk of fires and
deaths caused by children playing with multi-purpose lighters.
INCIDENTS/INJURIES: None reported.
WHAT TO DO: Consumers should stop using these lighters immediately.
Consumers should dispose of the lighter in a manner that is in
compliance with any state or local requirements. The lighter should not
be incinerated or punctured.
Consumers can obtain a refund by mailing the black plastic case of the
lighter and the use instructions that were included in the case to
Hammacher Schlemmer® along with a signed statement confirming the
lighter has been disposed of. Consumers can contact Hammacher
Schlemmer® at (800) 233-4800 seven days a week between 8:00 a.m. and
midnight ET or send e-mail to email@example.com to receive a return
authorization number and shipping instructions. Consumers will receive
their choice of a $50 Hammacher Schlemmer® gift certificate or a
refund of the $39.95 purchase price for each lighter purchased.
Hammacher Schlemmer mailed notification of this recall to all customers.
