Pelican Products is recalling 4,600 flashlights and 168 replacement battery packs because the lithium ion battery packs in the flashlights can overheat, posing a fire hazard.
The recall includes Pelican’s 9410L flashlights, which are large rechargeable LED flashlights equipped with lithium ion battery packs and replacement batteries. The Flashlight is available in yellow and black and in two different battery technologies: nickel metal hydride and lithium ion. They are intended for professional and industrial users and were sold at sports and specialty stores nationwide, online at Amazon.com and other industrial supply dealers or distributors from May 2014 through January 2016 for between $240 to $280 for the flashlights and between $50 and $70 for the replacement battery packs.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled flashlights and battery packs and contact Pelican for a free replacement.
