Belkin issues TuneBase car dock recall

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Fri October 23, 2009

Docks may pose unusual fire hazard

Accessory maker Belkin has issued a special product recall, addressing some of the company's TuneBase car docks. Specifically affected are the TuneBase FM with ClearScan, the TuneBase FM with Hands-Free, and the TuneBase Direct with Hands-Free. As a result of a problem with washers, versions of the docks bought on or after April 1st may produce smoke or fire when plugged into a car's power port.

Although the danger is only said to manifest in situations of high heat, humidity or usage, Belkin says it is recalling all TuneBases produced after April 1st. The faulty hardware can also be identified through the following model numbers, printed directly on the docks: F8Z441, F8Z441ea, F8Z442, F8Z442ea, F8Z176 and F8Z176eaBLK. Belkin is e-mailing prepaid UPS shipping labels to TuneBase owners who complete the recall's web form.
