About 140,000 Valucraft booster cables are being withdrawn because they were improperly assembled, and may pose a shock and explosion danger to consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that Tennessee-based AutoZone Parts has learned of four incidents of reverse polarity, involving minor property damage.
The recall affects eight-gauge and 10-gauge booster cables marked with 8GA and 10GA. The cables were sold through AutoZone stores in the U.S. and on its website from June 2007 through October 2007 for between $12 and $20 US each. The cables were manufactured in China.
Consumers should stop using the cables and return them for a refund or replacement.
