Best Buy is recalling 10,000 defective remote controls that are used in conjunction with Insignia DVD players due to a burn hazard.
If the batteries are inserted backwards into the remote with the negative and positive sides improperly switched, it can cause the remote to overheat. There have been no reported injuries.
The remote control is white and it has model number NS-A223 and Insignia printed on the front. The keypad has black letters and numbers. The recalled remotes were sold exclusively with the Insignia 100W DVD System – the remotes were not sold separately.
If you own one of these remotes you should stop using it immediately and contact Best Buy to receive a free replacement.
