Dollar Tree recalls 470,000 China-made glue guns
Tue Jun 24, 8:55 AM ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Dollar Tree Inc recalled about 470,000 Chinese-made hot glue guns because they are a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.
Dollar Tree said it was aware of four incidents in which the recalled Crafters Square Hot Melt Mini Glue Guns short-circuited, causing the craft gun to smoke. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled glue guns were sold from December 2007 through March 2008 for about $1 each, the safety agency said in a statement. Customers should stop using the recalled glue guns and return them to the store where purchased for a refund.

    Is Craft Square a Chinese company? Just how many of the product recalls of the last year were? I find it distasteful to blame an entire country for defects to products they produce as CONTRACTORS FOR international companies. My husband is a general contractor and I’d be more than a little annoyed if his customers mad-mouthed him for following THEIR materials and designs specifications.
