Cabela’s recalling 600 electronic jerky blasters

WASHINGTON (AP) — Cabela’s is recalling approximately 600 electronic jerky blasters because of a possible fire hazard.
The outdoor sporting goods company said Wednesday that the battery charger adapter can overcharge causing the electronic jerky blaster’s battery and battery charger adapter to overheat.
The hand-held, battery powered appliance resembles a caulking gun, Cabela’s says, and is used for making jerky sticks or strips.
There has been one report of the battery and the battery charger overheating.
No injuries have been reported.
The product has a black handle, a gold-toned 15-inch tube that holds the meat and an interchangeable tip at the end.
The tube is marked with “Cabela’s Power Jerky” written on it. The device was sold as a set with interchangeable tips and cleaning brushes.
The recalled item number IK-540848 can be found underneath the barcode on the product’s cardboard packaging and on the front of the instruction manual.
The device was sold exclusively at Cabela’s locations nationwide from August 2013 through March 2014. It sold for about $150.
Consumers should stop using the product and contact Cabela’s Inc. for a full refund. The company can be reached at 800-237-4444.
