Kodak Recalls 75,000 DC5000 Digital Cameras

Models could cause electric shock By Kodak Recalls
Kodak announced today that, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, it is voluntarily recalling about 75,000 DC5000 digital cameras worldwide. Owing to a manufacturing defect, consumers using these cameras can suffer an electrical shock.

The DC5000 was introduced back in June 2000 and sold for about $700. According to Kodak, since the camera's introduction, the company has received 12 reports of users who experienced an electrical shock while changing batteries or installing or removing the memory card or USB cable. There have been no reports of serious injury.


The affected cameras include all DC5000 models with serial numbers ranging from 01800001 through 11700825. For more information, visit http://www.kodak.com.
