Goal Zero of Bluffdale, Utah, recalled approximately 7,850 EC8 power cables due to potential safety risk.
The pins inside the connector on the power cord can deform and overheat, posing a fire hazard.
The firm has received four reports of the cable connected to the vehicle battery overheating, melting, or catching fire, some of which resulted in property damage.
The 12-foot EC8 Extension cable was sold individually and with the Car Charge Kit. This cable was used to connect Yeti power stations to either a Yeti Tank or a vehicle battery.
The power cables were manufactured in Chin and were sold at Bass Pro, REI and Sportsman’s Warehouse stores nationwide and online.
The company urges consumers to immediately stop using the recalled cables and contact Goal Zero, for a free replacement.
There have been no reported incidents to date.
