CleggPromo Issues Recall for Power Banks that Pose Fire Risk
A power bank from CleggPromo is being recalled due to a safety concern.
The marketing company announced the recall this week for about 1,500 CPB-100 power banks, catalog number 625401. These products, manufactured by Sinotec Technology, are used to provide emergency charging for portable electronic equipment. The recalled units are prone to overheating, which can cause the power bank to explode and catch fire.
The CPB-100 rectangular in shape with rounded corners. They are ream colored and have a silver panel on the top side with a white power button, four circles and the word "POWERBANK."
CleggPromo has received one report of its product overheating, catching fire, and causing fire damage. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled power banks were not sold at retail but were promotional items given as handouts at corporate events, meetings, trade shows and conventions from January 2014 to April 2015.
Consumers should immediately stop using product and contact CleggPromo to receive a free set of executive pens as a replacement product. The company will send consumers a prepaid shipping box and instructions on how to return the power bank free of charge.
Customers with questions can contact the company at (800) 842-2909.
