Energizer Canada, Inc. Announces Recall of Toy Flashlight

    TORONTO, Oct. 5 /CNW/ - Energizer Canada, Inc. today announced the
voluntary recall of the Pirates of the Caribbean Medallion Squeeze Light, sold
under the Energizer brand. In some samples tested through quality verification
screening, the company identified that the leather strap attached to the
medallion squeeze light contained paint with lead levels exceeding those
prescribed by Canadian regulations.
    Energizer distributed approximately 10,500 units of this product in the
Canadian market.
    The lights were assembled in the People's Republic of China during the
period from July 2006 to May 2007, and were sold at retail stores beginning in
September 2006. The lights are no longer in production.
    Energizer Canada, Inc. is working to ensure no further distribution of
this product and that any units currently in the possession of the public are
returned for destruction.
    Consumers should immediately take the recalled squeeze lights away from
children and contact the company for an opportunity to return and exchange the
recalled product for a refund worth $10 CDN. For more information about the
affected item and the exchange program, consumers can call (800) 925-0628
Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Consumers also can

refund process. The Website displays photos of the recalled light and provides
instructions on exchanging the product. Consumers should not return recalled
items to retailers. Energizer is currently reevaluating its testing policies
and procedures to ensure that all of its products meet or exceed government
standards, and provide the highest levels of quality and safety to consumers.
