Tobacco company R.J. Reynolds’ vaping subsidiary has recalled around 2.6 million vaping products that may pose a safety threat to consumers.

The company has voluntarily initiated a nationwide safety recall of all Vuse Vibe power units.  R.J. Reynolds initiated the recall after receiving consumer complaints about malfunctioning batteries, which may cause the power unit to overheat and create a fire risk.

The company has received 10 complaints related to the power unit. No injuries have been reported. The company is voluntarily recalling the 2.6 million power units it has sold. The company is investigating the cause of the incidents with the intent to return to the market after the issue has been resolved.

All consumers who have Vuse Vibe vapor products should stop using the product and not charge the power unit. Please call 1-800-369-8200 or visit www.vusevapor.com for information on how to return Vuse Vibe power units and receive a refund.
