helicopterrecallThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall of about 152,000 “Sky Champion” Wireless Indoor Helicopters due to a fire hazard. The rechargeable battery can ignite, potentially causing the entire copter to become engulfed in flames.

The “Sky Champion” indoor helicopter comes with a transmitter that controls and recharges the helicopter. It is made of foam and plastic and measures about 7″ by 3″. The transmitter measures about 6″ by 4″. You will find “”BH26047” printed on the tail of the recalled helicopters and “WIC 551777” and the UPC code 630990006005 printed on the packaging.

The helicopters were made in China and imported by Tradewinds International Enterprises Inc., of San Francisco, California. They were sold exclusively at Walgreen’s stores nationwide from June 2007 through November 2007 for about $20.
