Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain Dremel Micro Model 8050 Rotary Tools with date codes 407 through 505.

The model number and date codes are located on the name plate of the product, which, in turn, is located on the side opposite the “Dremel” logo. The recalled Rotary Tools are dark gray in color with a silver label and blue control buttons and have 8V lithium ion batteries.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CPSC, the Rotary Tool’s circuit board can overheat and melt the tool’s enclosure. If the tool is being held while overheating, it could present a burn hazard.
