WASHINGTON, July 17 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of 2,300 LED lanterns due to a wall charger plug that poses a fire hazard.

The UCO Arka LED lanterns, which operate as a flashlight or a lantern or a USB charger, were imported form China by Industrial Revolution Inc. of Tukwila, Wash.

The charger plug can fail, creating a fire hazard, the safety regulator said.

The lanterns have a red cap around a flashlight lens and a clear, collapsible plastic lantern top with a black base. The base has red, extend-able feet to keep the lantern upright.

Model number "A1265" is printed on the charger plug's prongs, the regulator said.

The lanterns were sold from April 2013 to May 2013 for about $70. They were sold exclusively at REI stores.

Consumers were advised to stop using the chargers and unplug them. They were also advised to contact REI for a free replacement charger plug.

Consumers can call 888-297-6062 for information.
