Canadian Tire (TSX:CTC.A) is recalling Mastercraft battery chargers because of problems with overheating.
The well-known retailer did not indicate how many units are involved in the recall, but says they were sold at Canadian Tires stores from 2000 until 2009.
The battery concerned is the three-hour Mastercraft charger model No.54-2973, which was sold with Mastercraft 18-volt cordless drill kits and combo kits.
The charger can overheat, posing a safety concern, and there have been reports of minor property damage.
Canadian Tire says owners are asked to immediately discontinue using the charger.
Customers should contact Techtronic Industries, toll-free at 1-800-597-9624, for information on having a replacement charger shipped to them at no cost.
