Recall of Certain ECCO Rechargeable LED Work/Utility Lamps

Launceston, Tasmania 14 October 2016

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. Although recent analysis points to possible manufacturing variations in the production of the battery cell as the potential cause of the failures to date, a specific defect in the product or its components has not been identified. To date, there have been no reported incidents in respect of this product in Australia or New Zealand.

This recall applies to worklamps manufactured from April 15, 2014 through November 19, 2015 with the following model numbers:


The model number and date of manufacture can be found on the box and on the lamp, as shown below:

If the box has a green sticker or if the label states “Rev. B,” it is not part of this recall. If neither of these are present, you must still check the date code to determine whether it falls within the recall range.
