Company recalls electronics remote control systems

Niles Audio Corporation of Miami, FL has announced the recall of about 4100 of its remote control systems for entertainment electronics manufactured in China.

The company reports that batteries powering these devices can fall during routine handling, potentially resulting in the rupturing of the battery and posing a fire hazard to consumers.  Niles says that it has received four reports of batteries falling from the remote control system during handling, leading to three reports of smoke, and one report of fire and a singed carpet.

The recalled remote control devices were sold through authorized dealers and distributors of audio/video equipment from January 2008 through September 2010 for between $1000 and $1300, depending on the model.
