CPSC Warns of Potential High-Flame Problems with Metal-Sleeved Disposable Lighters Manufactured By Feudor
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Universal Match Corporation of St. Louis, Missouri announced today the recall of certain metal-sleeved disposable lighters manufactured by Feudor. The lighters in question were sold in a special three-pack. The package, labeled "Special Offer," contained a lighter in a decorative, removable metal sleeve (case) with a plain lighter on each side of the one in the decorative sleeve. The metal wind screen of each lighter is engraved with the "Feudor" name. Tests confirm that only the middle lighter originally in the decorative metal sleeve could present a potential hazard.
