The CPSC, in cooperation with JS Products, of Las Vegas, Nevada, has announced the recall of about 2,000 3/8-Inch Drive Cordless Drill/Drivers made in China. Customers should stop using the product immediately.
The battery packs on these drill/drivers can overheat, expand, and possibly rupture, creating an explosion or thermal burn hazard.

The distributor, Mac Tools, of Westerville, Ohio, has received six reports of battery packs rupturing while charging and one report of the battery pack rupturing while in use.

The rupture that occurred while the product was in use resulted in the user sustaining minor skin burns. The other incidents did not involve any injuries.

The recall involves certain MAC-brand 14.4 Volt and 18.0 Volt 3/8-inch drive cordless drill/drivers. The 14.4 Volt units have part number CDD14438 or CDD14438-Kit and the 18.0 Volt units have Part Number CDD18012 or CDD18012-KIT. The part number can be found on the side of the drill near the logo.

The products were sold by Mac Tools from November 2003 through April 2005 nationwide for between $270 and $312, depending on the model.

Consumers should stop using the recalled drill/driver immediately and contact their Mac Tools distributor for information on receiving a free replacement drill/driver with battery pack.

For more information, call the Mac Tools Repair Department toll-free at (877) 622-3494 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit their Virtual Customer Service Web site at
