What is the problem?

The plastic holding the screws can break, causing the screws to come loose and the casing to separate. This can expose energized components, exposing users to electrocution or electric shock.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The charger holds two AA or AAA batteries, is silver colored and has a sticker on the top which says "Digital Concepts" and "Compact Travel Charger". This recall involves item numbers CH-1600S and CH-1600-RS which are identified with the date code MID#: 0801110. Both numbers can be found on the white label on the underside of the charger. Also on the underside are three screws and a retractable power plug.

These items were sold new+ at Cobra Digital, Lot-Less, Ocean State Jobbers (Ocean State Job Lot) and RadioShack from January 2011 through February 2012 for about $10.
