Koehler-Bright Star Recalls Flashlights Due to Explosion Hazard

Koehler-Bright Star has issued a recall for WorkSafe 3-D Cell Flashlights due to explosion hazard. The flashlights are missing an encapsulation on a circuit board component which protects the flashlight from igniting an explosive environment, posing an injury hazard to the user or bystander.

This recall involves WorkSafe 3-D cell flashlights, model number 2224 LED. The model number is printed at the top right side of the text contained on the flashlight.  The flashlight is safety orange with a black reflector assembly and black end cap and measures about 10.25 inches long by 2 inches in diameter. Only 3-D cell flashlights that do not contain a date code stamped on the body of the units are included in the recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled flashlights and inspect the flashlights for a missing date code on the body of the flashlights. If the recalled flashlight does not have a date code, contact Koehler-Bright Star for free replacement parts.
