WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Eastman Kodak Company, of Rochester, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 75,000 DC5000-model digital cameras worldwide. Due to a manufacturing defect, consumers using these cameras can suffer an electrical shock.

Kodak has received 12 reports, including six in the U.S., of consumers who experienced an electrical shock while changing batteries, or installing or removing the memory card or USB cable. There have been no reports of serious injury.

Does anyone have any details on how a battery powered device is causing these shocks?
