Nearly 200,000 VRURC portable charges sold on Amazon have been recalled after the company received a report of fire during a commercial flight, resulting in four flight attendants being transported to hospital for smoke inhalation.
This recall involves VRURC portable chargers with model number “OD-B7,” which have built-in cables and a built-in wall plug. The model number is printed on the back of the recalled chargers, which were sold in black, blue, green, orange, pink, red and white color options.
The chargers were sold exclusively at Amazon.com from July 2021 through May 2023 for between $30 and $40.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled portable chargers and contact VRURC for a free replacement product.
