Burn Hazard Prompts Recall: More Than Half Million Units

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Innovage LLC announced a voluntary recall of "Sky Scrambler" and "The Sharper Image" wireless indoor helicopters.

About 685,000 units were sold.

The rechargeable lithium ion battery inside the helicopters can overheat, catch fire, and ignite nearby combustibles, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

Innovage has received two reports of incidents of the toy helicopters igniting, including one burn injury to a consumer’s fingertip.

The "Sky Scrambler" and "The Sharper Image" toy helicopters have yellow, red or blue decals. BH26047 is printed on the Sky Scrambler’s tail. “The Sharper Image” is printed on the tail of “The Sharper Image” helicopters.

The helicopters were sold at mass merchandisers, department stores, drug stores, and other retail stores nationwide, and on the Web from June 2007 through May 2008 for about $20.

The helicopters were made in China.

You should immediately stop using the recalled helicopters and contact Innovage for a full refund.

    Isn't it about time we as THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA stop buying products from other countries? Start making these products here on AMERICAN SOIL... I am getting sick and tired of America acting and being so stupid in its choices! It's about time we become self dependent and stop supporting other countries and start supporting our own. STOP buying foreign products and start investing more in AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS!! I would only hope something would go wrong with me and a product from another country, because that's when I would sue the American Government for stupidity!! Wisen up America or we are doomed for a huge downfall!!
