Company recalls battery chargers

Sakar International, Inc. of Edison, NJ has recalled about 48,000 of its compact travel chargers manufactured in China.

According to the company, the plastic holding screws that secure the casing can break, potentially exposing energized components and posing a risk of electric shock or electrocution for users. Sakar International says that it has not received any reports of the charger falling apart, or of electrocution or electric shock, but has initiated the recall to prevent future incidents and injuries.

The recalled battery chargers were sold at Radio Shack, Ocean State Jobbers, Lot-Less and Cobra Digital from January 2011 through February 2012 for about $10.
