PANASONIC - Important Battery Pack Recall Notice

Recall Notice

The continued safe operation of your Panasonic Cordless Power Tool(s) is of paramount importance to all of us here at Panasonic. That's why we're working closely with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall six (6) models of Panasonic Power Tool Battery Packs. Not all Panasonic Battery Packs are affected by this recall, but some packs could detach from the power tool unexpectedly and injure a consumer, or bystander, if struck by the battery pack. To date, no injuries have been reported - and we want to keep it that way! So...

If you own a Battery Pack model EY9230, EY9136, EY9231, EY9200, EY9106 or EY9201 manufactured between May 1, 2001 and November 20, 2002, stop using the battery and contact Panasonic at 800-833-9626 between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday (The model number and date code are stamped on the top of the battery pack). Our customer service representatives will assist you in determining whether your Battery Pack(s) are subject to the recall and, if so, will arrange free replacement(s).

Again, your safety is our foremost concern and we appreciate your cooperation in this recall.
