SafetyAlerts Registrant Warning: Electrical Fire

 

 (SafetyAlerts) - SafetyAlerts has received a Safety Warning from one of our registrants that we feel should be delivered to all of our registrants.

One of our registrants purchased a new electric clock from Kmart to give to his son for the holidays. The clock was a cartoon character series "Scooby Doo" Mystery Machine Van. Sparks shot out of the clock burning the clothing of the child and eventually burning down the entire house.

The registrant reported that the independent Insurance Investigator and the firemen determined the clock to be the cause of the fire. The CPSC has been contacted regarding this incident.

The toy clock was also sold at Wal Mart.
