Miami, FL—Niles Audio Corporation and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 4,160 remote control systems for entertainment electronics over fire hazards the product poses. The CPSC announced the product recall on February 23, 2011.

The product recall was enacted after discovering that if the battery falls from the remote control during handling, it can rupture and smoke or ignite, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves the Niles iRemoteTS and iC2 remote control systems. These are wireless remote control devices that are designed to operate audio, video and home theater systems from a single remote control. The iRemoteTS measures 5.4 by 6.2 by 1.25 inches. The Niles logo is featured in the top-left corner of the unit. The iC2 measures 5.2 by 3 by 7.5 inches. ‘iC2’ and the Niles logo are printed on the front of the unit,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact Niles Audio to schedule an in-home repair to receive a replacement battery and a more secure battery cover. Niles Audio is directly contacting consumers who purchased the recalled remote systems.

For further information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Niles Audio at (800) 667-3991 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.nilesaudio.com/recall.
