CPSC, Comarco Inc. Announce Recall to Replace Detachable Plugs On Power Adapters
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Comarco Inc., of Irvine, Calif., is voluntarily
recalling to replace about 125,000 detachable plugs on power adapters.
The plug can break open and expose live wires, posing an electrocution
or electric shock hazard to consumers.
Comarco has received 12 reports of the plugs breaking open, though
no injuries have been reported.
The recalled AC plugs, which were sold with 70-watt AC power
adapters, have the word "ChargeSource" printed on top of the plug. The
black adapters have a model name of "Targus" and model number of PA-AC-
70W-2, which can be found on a label on the back of the adapter. The
name "Targus" also appears in white letters on the front of the adapter.
The adapters were manufactured in the United States.
Major retail stores nationwide sold the adapters between July 2002
and March 2003 for between $90 and $120.
Consumers should stop using the AC plugs immediately and contact
Comarco to obtain a free replacement plug. Consumers should contact
Comarco at (800) 859-7928 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT Monday through
Friday or log on to the company's website at www.regcen.com/comarco
