Rapala recalls rechargeable fillet knife for fire hazard
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKBT) — Rapala USA has recalled a rechargeable fillet knife because of a potential fire hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The battery can overheat and catch fire if non-Rapala chargers are used to charge the battery, according to Rapala.
Consumers should stop using the knife, remove the battery and look for a white ETL label on the battery.
If the battery does not have a white ETL label, consumers should contact Rapala USA for a free replacement battery and for pre-paid return of the old battery to Rapala for proper disposal.
