Warning, Wii owners! The machines are rebelling! Specifically, the Psyclone Essentials and React Wii 4-Dock Recharge Stations, which have been reported to overheat and have caused at least two reports of burns. Those products are being officially recalled.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the Wii Remote chargers, distributed by Griffin International of Minneapolis, "can overheat, posing a burn or fire hazard to the consumer." About 220,000 of these scorchers were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Amazon.com and Best Buy.

Psyclone will be offering a replacement. Details at their web site.
