The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for a product, sold exclusively at Costco, that has been blamed for at least two house fires.  At issue are 567,000 chargers from Michigan based myCharge that are made in China.

myCharge told CBS News they received five reports of the item overheating, including the two house fires blamed on the charging device.  Costco said they've had over 100 hundred brought back to them.  Customers cited multiple issues that ranged from the unit smoking and sparking to melting and expanding in size.
