WASHINGTON (Reuters) - About 102,000 Disney branded portable DVD players are being recalled because the battery packs sold with the players can overheat and possibly burst when recharging, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
said on Thursday.
The commission said there have been 17 reports of batteries overheating with three reports of minor skin irritations and three reports of minor property damage.
The DVD players were sold at Walt Disney Co. (NYSE:DIS - news
) theme parks, through the Disney catalog, and at discount and electronics stores nationwide from April 2005 through March 2006 for between $70 and $130.
