America News: Clarion recalls more car nav and entertainment systems

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in co-operation Clarion Corp, has announced a voluntary recall of the N.I.C.E. P200 Navigation & Entertainment systems due to a potential fire hazard posed by the lithium-ion batteries in the units.

The company recalled around 2,500 units in December, and this new notice expands that number by an additional 1,500 units.

According to the recall notice, the systems were manufactured by Kiryung Electronics of Seoul in South Korea, distributed by Clarion Corp of America, and sold by car audio and mobile electronics stores across the US between May 2006 and August 2007.

The recall includes any N.I.C.E. P200 in which batteries were previously replaced.

To date, Clarion has received fifteen reports of the units melting or overheating. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled product immediately and contact Clarion for a full refund and information on returning the product.
