The company says the replacement battery pack can explode unexpectedly, posing a risk of serious injury to consumers. This recall involves RAYOVAC-branded replacement battery packs used with cordless power tools.

"RAYOVAC," "NI-CD" and a part number beginning with "CTL" are printed in white lettering on the product. The battery packs were sold in voltages ranging between 2.4 and 18 volts in various sizes and shapes.

They were sold as replacement batteries to the following brand tools: Black and Decker, Bosch, DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee, Panasonic, Ryobi and Skil. Sold exclusively at BatteriesPlus stores nationwide between June 2008 and October 2011 for about $60.
