This recall involves Street Charge solar powered charging stations used to charge up to six mobile devices at a time. The charging stations are approximately 150 inches tall by 63 inches wide by 54 inches deep. Aluminum panels cover three sides of the tree-shaped charging station’s top post. “Street Charge” is etched on the product panels.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled charging stations until a free inspection and repair of weld connections is conducted by Goal Zero. The firm is notifying all known customers.
The firm has received three reports of the top post detaching. No injuries have been reported.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
