Announce Recall of Ozark Trail Butane Lighters WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Wal-Mart Stores Inc., of Bentonville, Ark., is recalling about 1 million Ozark Trail butane utility lighters. These lighters can have a cracked fuel cylinder, which can allow butane to leak and ignite. These lighters can continue to burn after the trigger is released, and can exhibit flaring characteristics or burning with an unsteady flame. Wal-Mart has received two reports of these lighters leaking fuel, which then ignited and singed the user's facial and arm hair. There have been no reports of serious injuries or property damage. These Ozark Trail butane lighters have model number HH-133, which is written on the packaging. The lighters are about 11 inches long, have a black plastic handle with a red trigger and on/off switch. Wal-Mart stores nationwide sold these lighters from August 1997 through March 1999 for about $2. Consumers with these recalled butane lighters should stop using them immediately, and return them to the nearest Wal-Mart store for a refund. For more information, consumers should call Wal-Mart at (800) WAL-MART between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m and 9 p.m. Saturday, and 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday CDT. [Source]
