L.L. Bean Insta-Bed Battery Chargers Recalled for Injury Hazard

Comments Off

L.L. Bean, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a voluntary recall of its Insta-Bed battery chargers.

The batteries in the car chargers can overheat when the car is running, causing the battery-charging unit to explode. This can pose an injury hazard to consumers.

To date, the company has received one report of the batteries overheating and bursting. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the car charging units included with L.L. Bean Raised Insta-Beds with Wenzel model numbers 822628 and 822629. These model numbers correspond to LL Bean catalog number 55780. The model number can be found on the product packaging. The car charging units are connected to the cigarette lighter outlet found in most cars.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled battery chargers and to contact LL Bean for a free replacement.

The company advises consumers to only use the original chargers supplied with the Insta-Bed product. Using a different charger could result in product damage or injury.
