On January 26, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and RadioShack Corp. announced a voluntary recall of approximately 6,000 Danbar Knight Hawk Toy Helicopters for a potential fire hazard. The defective helicopter toys have a battery that can overheat when charging.
The recall affects Danbar Knight Hawk 3D remote control helicopters with model number 006047 on the back of the controller.
RadioShack has received one report of a fire starting at a store when the toy was charging. The products were sold at RadioShack locations nationwide and online from October 2009 through November 2009.
Consumers are urged to stop using the products immediately and return them to any RadioShack for a full refund.
