The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of 62,200 lighters that pose a fire or burn hazard.
The CPSC said the lighters do not have a child-resistant mechanism on them and were not tested to be child-resistant, meaning that a child under the age of 5 can turn them on and burn themselves or start a fire.
The Slim Soft and Slim Jet disposable lighters came in black, blue, clear, gray, red, white and yellow and have a molded circular grip. They are about 3 1/2 inches by 1 inch and have “DISSIM” printed on the side.
They were sold at independent stores across the country from September 2022 through November 2023 for $18.
If you have the lighters, you should stop using them and contact the company for instructions on how to destroy them and submit proof of the damage to get a free refund.
