Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

Rage wireless guitarThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 57,000 Rage Wireless Guitars due to a defective circuit board. If the AA batteries are installed incorrectly, the circuit board can cause them to leak, posing a risk of chemical burns to players.

The Rage Wireless controller is made to be used with the Nintendo Wii system. The guitar is blue or white and is 31 inches long. The guitar contains battery-operated LED-lighted fret buttons on the neck of the guitar.

These were made in China and distributed by Performance Designed Products LLC, of Sherman Oaks, California. They were sold at mass merchandisers and specialty retailers nationwide from June 2008 through September 2008 for between $40 and $60.

If you have one of these guitars, you are advised to stop using it immediately and return it to the place where purchased for a full refund. Do not contact or return it to Nintendo.

For more information, you can contact Performance Designed Products by calling (800) 331-3844 between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or by visiting their Web site.
