Goal Zero of Bluffdale, Utah, is recalling about 118 Street Charge solar powered mobile device charging stations.
The weld connecting the top and bottom posts can fail and allow the top post to fall, posing an impact hazard to those nearby.
The firm has received three reports of the top post detaching. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Street Charge solar powered charging stations used to charge up to six mobile devices at a time.
The charging stations are approximately 150 inches tall by 63 inches wide by 54 inches deep. Aluminum panels cover three sides of the tree-shaped charging station’s top post.
“Street Charge” is etched on the product panels.
The charging stations, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at colleges, stadiums and other public facilities nationwide from October 2014, through February 2017, for between $5,500 and $10,000.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled charging stations until a free inspection and repair of weld connections is conducted by Goal Zero. The firm is notifying all known customers.
Consumers may contact Goal Zero toll-free at 877-897-3193 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (MT) Monday through Friday, or online at www.goalzero.com and click on “Product Recall” for more information.
