The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Kyocera Wireless have announced the recall of 140,000 cell phone batteries.

The CPSC has four reports of the batteries short-circuiting, then overheating and bursting open. One man received second-degree burns when a battery burst in his pants pocket.

The recalled batteries are in the Kyocera 7135 Smartphones. The batteries have the red and white Kyocera name printed on the front and a product code ending with dash-zero-five.

Consumers are being asked to immediately stop using the battery. Kyocera Wireless will contact consumers to arrange delivery of a free replacement.
