Power Functions IR Speed Remote
We've decided to recall the Power Functions IR Speed Remote Control voluntarily after having received 4 reports of the remote control heating up after batteries were inserted. No injuries have occurred.
We sold 997 units of the remote control between 8th April and 6th May 2009 - either separately (item 8879) or as part of the kits Emerald Night Train (10194) and Power Functions (8882). These remote controls were only sold directly through the LEGO Shop (online or via the catalogue). They weren't available at any retail outlets.
Is my remote control part of the recall?
If your remote control is affected, it becomes hot to the touch in the first 5 to 10 minutes when you use it for the very first time.
What should I do if my remote control is part of the recall?
Please get in touch with us for a replacement.
