  Click to enlarge

Puckator Game Over branded Power Bank products for electronic devices sold with a product code of CHAR08 and an EAN/UPC of 5055071730252.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Power Bank products include both Chemical and Reprotoxic injury, both serious health and safety hazards.

Specifically, the plastic cable housing of the recalled Power Banks contain Short Chain Chlorinated Paraffins (“SCCPs”), measured value up to 5,12% by weight. In addition, the solder used in the electrical connections contains lead and cadmium (measured values up to 68 % and 0.44 % by weight respectively).

According to the EU’s Raπid Alert System, SCCPs persist in the environment, are toxic to aquatic organisms at low concentrations and bioaccumulate in wildlife and humans, posing a risk to human health and the environment. Lead and cadmium are toxic for the environment. More importantly, Lead is a known reprotoxic chemical in children, particularly boys, and a developmental inhibitor for both young boys and girls.

These Power Bank products do not comply with Europe’s Regulation on persistent organic pollutants (“POP Regulation”) and with the requirements of the Commission Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (“RoHS 2 Directive”).

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Puckator Game Over branded Power Bank products do not comply with the requirements of the EU Heath and Safety Products Regulations.

Consequently, a recall of these products from European end users has been ordered.
