Recall: Milwaukee 14.4 and 18 Volt Batteries

Milwaukee is advising owners of Milwaukee Power Plus, Chicago Pneumatic, and Extractor 14.4 and 18 volt 2.4 ah NiCd battery packs to call them and possibly get an exchange. Apparently, on batteries manufactured between July 1999 and February 2004, damage to a vent can lead to the battery actually exploding. These explosions have lead to 35 recorded incidents, 11 of which resulted in injury.
