Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Dynamite 7.4 volt LiPo Batteries used to power Horizon Hobby’s Losi Micro remote control (“RC”) vehicles. The recalled Batteries measure approximately 2 inches long by 1 inch wide by 1/2 inch thick.

The Batteries were sold separately from the vehicles and have red and black wires coming out of the end into a white plastic connector. The words, “Dynamite”, “180 mAh”, “2S”, “20C Li-Po” and “DYN1429” are printed on the side of the black and orange-colored batteries.

According to the CPSC, the positive and negative Battery leads are incorrectly wired to the Battery connector in the recalled product. The use or charging of the Battery, therefore, can cause the Battery to overheat, posing a fire hazard.

About Salmonella Poisoning:
Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning) is a very common type of food poisoning caused by the Salmonella bacterium. Although there are thought to be over 2,000 different kinds of these bacteria, only a comparative few make humans sick. Salmonella serotype “Typhimurium” and Salmonella serotype “Enteritidis” are thought to the two most common types in North America.

In young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems, Salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. Even in otherwise healthy people, Salmonellosis may cause high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In rare cases, however, Salmonellosis can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected Aneurysms) Endocarditis and Arthritis.

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Salmonellosis symptoms.
