Disney Recalls 102,000 DVD Players

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday a recall of 102,000 Disney-branded DVD players that were sold between April 2005 and March 2006. The devices contain battery packs that can overheat and potentially explode while being charged. 17 reports of overheating were filed with the Commission.

The affected DVD players came in a variety of themes of children and were sold at Disney theme parks, catalogs and at discount stores across the United States for between $70 and $130. Customers are urged to contact Memorex Electronics — the company that distributed the batteries — for a replacement. More information is available on the company’s Web site.
