L.L. Bean car-charging units recalled for safety hazard

About 3,900 car-charging units are being recalled in the U.S. because they can overheat and burst when in operation, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

The recall applies to units sold with L.L. Bean's Raised Insta-Beds with the model numbers 822628 and 822629. The units were sold through L.L. Bean stores and catalogues from June to August 2007 for about $150 US.

Consumers should stop using the products and contact the company for a free replacement.
