tablet recallBETHESDA, MD. — The recalled adaptor, also commonly referred to as a charger, was included with the Polaroid PMID709 seven-inch Internet tablet (also known as the PMID709KB). The adaptor has two prongs for plugging into an outlet on one end and a wire leading to a single plug for the tablet. A label on the bottom of the casing near the plug prongs has “Polaroid Power Adaptor” printed on it with the model number SX-30017-D.

The firm has received approximately ten reports of the adaptor overheating.  No injuries or property damage have been reported.

Customers should immediately stop using the adaptor and contact Southern Telecom for a replacement adaptor at no cost.  Customers will receive an envelope for returning the recalled product with their replacement adaptor.

The item was sold Big Lots in July 2013 for $90 for the tablet and adaptor.
