WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Dual-Voltage CineMate II Home Theater Speaker Systems

Units: About 20,500

Distributor: Bose Corporation, of Framingham, Mass.

Hazard: A component in the bass module can fail when used outside of the U.S. in electrical outlets rated at 220 volts or higher, presenting a fire hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: Bose has received two reports of the bass modules igniting when used in 220-volt electrical outlets in Europe. No injuries were reported.

Each speaker system includes two speakers, one bass module, a remote control device, an interface module and accessories. The components are black. Dual-voltage systems included in the recall have a product code of 051365, 051470 or 057971, which are the first six digits of the serial number on the product label located on the back of the bass module.

Sold at: U.S. Military Exchanges and select U.S. retailers from September 2009 through September 2012 for between $600 and $800.

Manufactured in: Mexico
