UJ Trading in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has recalled approximately 18,500 Danbar Knight Hawk Toy Helicopters due to a fire hazard. RadioShack previously recalled the helicopters in January, due to one fire report.
The battery housing under the canopy of the remote-control helicopters can overheat while charging, leading to a potential fire. UJ Trading has reported no injuries.
The recalled units can be identified by the model number 006047 marked on the back of the controller and the Knight Hawk logo located on the front of the controller. The body of the helicopter also contains the markings: AH-64 and helicopter.
Consumers should immediately take the helicopter away from children and contact UJ Trading to obtain a full refund. UJ Trading will provide a paid postage label to return the recalled product.
Consumers with incident or injuries reports are asked to contact the CPSC by visiting www.saferproducts.gov.
