Heated gloves recalled
About 1,500 pairs of Ski-Doo and Can-Am heated gloves and Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries have been recalled because the rechargeable battery pack can overheat, posing a fire hazard. The gloves are only available in black and are sold with two lithium-ion rechargeable batteries and a charger. The gloves have either “ski-doo” or “can-am” on the pointer finger and on the wrist band of each glove. The recalled product codes can be found on the label sewn inside the gloves. Recalled product codes are 446247 for the Can-Am heated gloves, 446248 for the Ski-Doo heated gloves and 4880580001 for the two Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries that are sold separately. They were sold from August 2013 through February 2014.
There have been three reports of batteries overheating while charging. In two reports, there was minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.
