 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall for the Rage Wireless Guitar which is designed for use with the Wii. Because of a faulty circuit board it is possible to receive a chemical burn from the guitar if the batteries are improperly installed.    


The Rage Wireless Guitars were manufactured in China and distributed by the Californian company Performance Designed Products. The guitars are easily distinguishable by their blue or white color and the word "Rage" in capital letters at the top of the neck. Gamers in possession of the guitar are urged to immediately stop using the peripheral and to return it to its origin of purchase.    


For more information on the recall, Performance Designed Products can be reached at (800)-331-3844 or at their website www.pdp.com
