Wichita, KS– Sky City Holdings International LTD, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has voluntarily recalled about 50,000 Coleman® WaterBeam™ 4D Water-Activated Floating Spotlights. The CPSC announced the recall on September 14, 2010.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the lens assembly can come apart from the main housing unit of the spotlights with force, which can pose an impact injury risk to consumers.
The CPSC press release stated, “The recalled spotlights are Coleman® water-activated hand-held spotlights, model number 5338-782 (orange) UPC 76501 222733, model number 5338-792 (yellow) UPC 76501 222753 and model number 2000000153 (blue/white) UPC 76501 226683. A white label is affixed to the inside of the spotlight lens with the model number and production date information printed on the label.”
The recalled spotlights were sold at various sporting good stores and retail outlets across the U.S. The product was sold from January 2005 through June 2010 for between $20 and $25.
Consumers are advised to stop using the spotlights and visit www.coleman.com to learn how to obtain a replacement light.
