Bean Announce Recall of Safety Kits WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product.

Name of Product: Auto Safety Kit, Auto Aid in a Bottle, Winter Safety Kit, and Outdoorsman in a Bottle Units: About 4,100 Distributor: L.L. Bean, of Freeport, Maine Hazard: The products have a flashlight that relies on a powerful magnet and copper coil for manual recharging.

The product's packaging lacks appropriate warning information. Incidents/Injuries: There have been no reported incidents or injuries. Description: Each kit contains a variety of safety equipment including a "Forever Flashlight," which does not use batteries. Shaking the flashlight for 30 seconds provides about 5 minutes of light. The Outdoorsman in a Bottle kit contains a compass. Other items which could be included in the kits include gloves, a blanket, emergency vest, a water bottle, a rain poncho and a knife. L.L. Bean is written on the bottle or blanket with these kits. Sold by: L.L. Bean's stores, catalogs and Web sites sold these kits from August 2005 through November 2005 for between $20 and $60.
