Rechargeable fillet knife recalled due to fire hazard

National

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall for a rechargeable fillet knife that can overheat and catch fire if used with a non-brand charger.

Rapala USA has recalled around 128,000 knives effective immediately. The recall involves the Rapala Rechargeable Fillet Knife with item number RRFN.  The knife handles are black and gray.  The Rapala logo is printed in red on the handle, along with the word ION in white.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled rechargeable fillet knife, remove the battery and look for a white ETL label on the battery.  If the battery does not have a white ETL label, consumers should contact Rapala USA for a free replacement battery and for pre-paid return of the old battery to Rapala for proper disposal.
