The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling rechargeable batteries imported by Coby Electronics Corp., of Lake Success, N.Y., and sold with portable DVD/CD/MP3 players.
The rechargeable batteries can overheat, posing a fire hazard.
The recall involves batteries sold with the TF-DVD 1020 portable DVD/CD/MP3 players, with the following serial numbers:
The serial number can be found on a white sticker attached to the battery.
The portable player looks like a small laptop computer and has a 25-centimetre swivel TV screen. "Coby" is written on the front cover and under the screen. "TF-DVD 1020" can be found on the bottom of the unit.
About 13,000 of the batteries were sold packaged with the portable player across the United States from May 2007 through July 2008 for about $168 US each. They were sold at discount, electronics, andmusic stores.
