Description: Lighter Recalled by NBO Group NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Ken Giles October 29,1996 (301) 504-7052 Release # 97-013 CPSC and NBO Group Inc. Announce Lighter Recall WASHINGTON, D.C. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), NBO Group Inc. of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., is recalling approximately 110,000 refillable novelty and disposable cigarette lighters that do not comply with CPSC safety standards. The lighters, which operate with push-button electronic ignition mechanisms to produce the flame, do not have safety devices that prevent young children from igniting the lighters. CPSC and NBO are not aware of any injuries involving these lighters. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury. Most of the lighters are silver-, copper-, or gold-tone metal with relief figures of birds, dragons, crocodiles, or other animals on the casing. Other styles include lighters that resemble revolvers and dragons. The lighters were sold individually or from display trays nationwide from September 1994 to March 1996 for $5 to $10 by small retailers of every type. Consumers should stop using the lighters immediately and return them to the place where purchased for a full refund. For more information about this recall, consumers can contact Patty Pany of NBO Group toll-free at (800) 716-0100. U.S. Customs alerted CPSC to this hazard. [Source]
