Description: Arett Sales Corp. Recall of Multi-Purpose Barbecue Lighters NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 10, 2005 Release # 05-100 Firm's Recall Hotline: (800) 431-1212 CPSC Consumer Hotline: (800) 638-2772 CPSC Media Contact: Kim Dulic (301) 504-7058 CPSC, Arett Sales Corp. Announce Recall of Multi-Purpose Barbecue Lighters WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Arett Sales Corporation (ASC), of Cherry Hill, N.J., is recalling about 2 million multi-purpose barbecue lighters. Sold under the brand name "Kitchen Works," the lighters lack child-resistant mechanisms that meet federal safety standards. Young children could operate these lighters which poses a fire hazard. Federal standards require multi-purpose lighters to have the same level of child- resistance as required in the safety standard for cigarette lighters. The child-resistant mechanism must operate safely, function for the expected life of the lighter, and not be easy to deactivate. The child- resistant mechanism also must automatically reset after each use. ASC has not received any reports of incidents or injuries involving these barbecue lighters. The recalled gas-fueled lighters have an orange or red plastic body, and a silver-colored metal nozzle. Each lighter measures 10 ¾- inches long. The lighters were made in China. Dollar stores nationwide sold the barbecue lighters from January 2001 through July 2004 for about $1. Consumers should stop using the lighters immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or dispose of the lighters in a manner that is in compliance with all state and local requirements. Lighters should not be incinerated or punctured. For more information, consumers should contact ASC toll-free at (800) 431-1212 between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. [Source]
