Hazard Systems Pty Ltd, the Australian division of ECCO Safety Group (headquartered in Boise, Idaho USA) is conducting a safety recall of its first generation rechargeable LED Work/Utility lamp – a portable, magnetic-mountable LED work/utility lamp powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. Due to a suspected manufacturing issue with one of the components, the product may overheat and present a risk of fire.

To date, there have been no reported incidents in respect of this product in Australia or New Zealand.

This recall applies to worklamps manufactured on or before November 19, 2015 with the following model numbers:
