The Consumer Product Safety Commission and US distributor Griffin International have issued a recall on 220,000 Wii Remote charging stations.

The pair said that the Psyclone Essentials and React Wii 4-Dock Battery Recharge Stations, which are manufactured in China, have the potential to overheat, with six reported cases to date.

The charging stations were sold at Target, Toys R Us and on Amazon.com across the US from January 2008 through July 2009, the CPSC said.
