Lighters missing child-resistant mechanism - Product Recall

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies

lightersThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 24,000 "Gas Match" and "Ready, Aim...Fire" Multi-Purpose Lighters. The lighters fail to meet federal safety standards because they may not contain a child-resistant mechanism. This poses a potential fire and burn hazard to young children.

The recalled "Gas Match" lighters have either a multi-colored red/white, blue/white or green/white plastic body, and a silver-colored metal nozzle. They measure 10½-inches long. The recalled "Ready, Aim...Fire" lighters have either a solid black, blue, red or green plastic body, and a silver-colored metal nozzle. They measure 9-inches long.

These lighters were made in China and sold at retail stores in New York State from August 2008 through October 2008 for about $1 each.

If you have one, you are advised to immediately stop using it and contact YMCA Trading to arrange to return the lighter for a refund. You can reach YMCA Trading by calling (866) 950-9622 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or by e-mailing them at tradingymca@hotmail.com.
