May 22, 2019 — ION Audio has recalled about 41,000 portable speakers because they can explode and cause injuries or property damage.
ION Audio LLC, of Cumberland, Rhode Island announced the recall after 5 reports of the speakers exploding, including 4 reports of property damage. No injuries were reported.
The problem is that hydrogen gas can leak from the portable speaker battery when charging and the speaker can explode.
ION Audio is asking consumers to stop using the recalled speaker and contact the company for a refund in the form of an ION Audio gift card.
This recall involves the Sport Express, Cornerstone, Cornerstone Glow, and Keystone ION Audio portable speakers.
The UPC number is located on the bottom of the speakers.
