E-Filliate Recalls Earphones for Overheating and Fire Danger
The reason the company is recalling these earphones is that they may overheat while charging or in use, posing burn and fire hazards to users.
At the time of the recall, the company had received 61 reports of the earphones overheating during charging or use, including five reports of fire and four reports of minor burn injuries.
The earphones were manufactured in China and imported by E-filliate Inc., of Rancho Cordova, California. They were sold at Home Depot, Lowe’s, and other electronic stores and hardware stores nationwide and online at www.cyberguys.com from December 2019 through July 2021 for about $60.
The earphones have a black and yellow neckband with wired earbuds. Manufacture codes included in this recall are:
- D4 1910
- D4 1912
- D4 2003
- D4 2004
- D4 2006
- D4 2009
- D4 2011
- D4 2101
- D4 2103
- D4 2104
You should be able to find the manufacture code printed on the left side of the band. If no manufacture code is present, assume the product is included in the recall.
Stop Using the Earphones Immediately
E-filliate suggests that consumers stop using the earphones immediately and contact E-filliate to receive a pre-paid shipping label to return the product directly to the company for a free replacement. The company will email you a link to access a printable, pre-paid shipping label you can use to mail the product back, or you can choose to receive the label by mail.
Even if your earphones appear to be working fine, E-filliate recommends you return them anyway. You can do so without a receipt.
