Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

battery chargerThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 35,500 Rechargeable Batteries and Recharging Station for Didj Custom Gaming System. The batteries can overheat if the system is placed into the recharging base upside down, posing a burn hazard to consumers. LeapFrog has received 12 reports of this happening, including one report of a minor burn.

These were made in China for LeapFrog Enterprises Inc., of Emeryville, California and sold at department stores and toy stores nationwide, through the LeapFrog Website and other online retailers from July 2008 through October 2008 for about $35 each.

The Recharging Station comes with two rechargeable batteries, an AC adapter, and a recharging base. The recharging base is white with a green indicator light on the bottom. The Recharging Station for Didj was sold as item number 30676, which is printed on the box and on the bottom of the recharging base.

If you have one of these, you should immediately stop using the recharging base and the two rechargeable batteries and contact LeapFrog for a full refund. You can continue using the AC adapter connected directly to the Didj handheld.

For more information, contact LeapFrog by calling (800) 701-5327 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Friday. You can also reach them by visiting their Website or by emailing them at didjsupport@leapfrog.com.
