Cobra Electronics recalls children's radios for chemical burn hazard

Chicago-based Cobra Electronics is recalling about 8,000 children's two-way radios because the batteries can leak electrolyte, creating a chemical burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

No associated injuries have been reported.

The recall affects radios with the product No. PR191-2VP sold in U.S. Toys "R" Us stores from August 2008 through September 2008 for about $30 US each.

The products were made in China.

Consumers should stop using the radios and contact the company for replacements.
