Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves seven models of Charging Kits with universal serial bus (USB) connectors that are used to recharge Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod devices.

The recalled Charging Kits were sold under the Ban.do, Jonathan Adler and Lilly Pulitzer brand names and contained a Wall Charger, a 12 to 24-volt car charger, a 30-pin USB cord and a Lightning port adapter.

The Wall Chargers are plastic cubes about 1-1/4 inches long, 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch tall with two metal prongs for plugging into an electrical outlet on one end and a USB port on the opposite end. Ban.do Wall Chargers came in the colors yellow and black and white stripe.

Jonathan Adler Wall Chargers came in multicolor and blue and white patterns. Lilly Pulitzer Wall Chargers came in multicolor floral patterns (see photograph above for package details). The following charging kits are being recalled:

  • Ban.do brand:
    • Power Trip Frills; item number: 14150111
    • Power Trip Mermaid/Blush Stripe; item number: 14150118
  • Jonathan Adler brand:
    • Architectural Borders; item number: 140250
    • Hudson; item number: 140252
  • Lilly Pulitzer brand:
    • Beach Rose; item number: 143501
    • Mai Tai; item number: 78602
    • Trippin and Sippin; item number: 143504

Brand names are printed on the top front of the packaging and on the Lightning port adapters. Model names are on the bottom front of the packaging. Item numbers are on the back of the package in the bottom right corner.

According to the CPSC, the Wall Chargers can overheat and emit smoke and sparks, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. The prongs on the charger can detach and remain in the electrical outlet, posing a risk of electrical shock.

Lifeguard Press has received six reports of the wall chargers emitting smoke and sparking and six reports of prongs detaching from the plug. No injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the USB wall charger and contact Lifeguard Press to return the charging kit for a full refund.
