Jetline Comments on Product Recall
Jetline, Gaffney, S.C., recently issued a voluntary recall of one of its products, a USB to AC Power Adapter with SKU IT108. The adapters were recalled due to an instance of one user being burned on the hand when using the product. Early this afternoon, Dana Zezzo, CAS, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Jetline, sent a short statement to Promo Marketing about the recall. Said Zezzo:
"I am very proud of the ownership of Jetline for taking the voluntary action on this situation. This continues to prove how dedicated our company is to the future of not only the Jetline brand, but the promotional products industry. I am honored to be part of this team and am in awe of what our staff practices when it comes to compliance."
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated that about 31,000 of the adapters have been recalled. They are meant to be used to charge cellphones and other electronic products. The model number ADCP3-1000 imprinted on the plug side of the adapter. They are plastic cubes, about 1" to 1.25" on one side with two prongs for plugging into an electrical outlet and a USB port on the other. The chargers came in five different colors: black, blue, green, red and white, and were manufactured in China.
The CPSC report states that the recalled adapters/chargers were distributed free as a promotional giveaway at trade shows nationwide from October 2013 to April 2014. It recommends users immediately stop using the chargers and throw them away. The organization also provided contact information for affected users:
