What’s the Problem?
This CPSC Recall began on Jan. 19, 2021, and affects Rapala Rechargeable Fillet Knives (item number RRFN). The knife handles are black and gray with the “Rapala” logo printed in red on the handle, along with the word “ION” in white.
“Rapala USA has received reports of 12 batteries overheating and catching fire, in some cases causing damage to surrounding areas,” CPSC said. “No injuries have been reported.”
The recalled knives were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Fleet Farm and sporting goods stores nationwide and online from March 2011 through December 2018 for about $101.
Consumers who purchased a recalled Rapala fillet knife should remove the battery and look for a white ETL label on the battery. If the battery does not have the label, you should contact Rapala for a free replacement battery and for pre-paid return of the old battery to Rapala for proper disposal.
The CPSC Recall Number for this item is 21-070.
