The firm has received four reports of batteries overheating, including one report of a battery melting and catching fire resulting in property damage of less than $100. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves illu-Mist 40001 one-gallon and 40002 two-gallon battery-powered garden sprayers.
The sprayers have a plastic triangle-shaped handle in gray with teal blue trim and a white tank with “illu-Mist” printed on the front side of the tank.
The sprayers measure 15.5 inches and 19.5 inches in height when assembled.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled battery-powered sprayers, remove the battery tray, and look for a brown battery, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.
If the battery is brown, consumers should remove the battery and tray, dispose of them as required by local laws for disposal of lithium-ion batteries, and contact HD Hudson for a free replacement battery and tray.
Always follow proper battery use and storage procedures as listed in the instructions, the CDC said.
The sprayers were sold at Lowe’s stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from December 2019 through January 2021. The cost was between $40 and $50.
