Nov. 30 , Nov 30, 2004 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Classic Sport Cos. of Broomfield, Colo., Tuesday recalled 1,470 table soccer games because the lighting may pose a fire hazard.

Consumers are advised to stop using the game immediately.

The company said the table soccer game lighting may spark if the tube lights are not properly installed, posing a fire hazard.

There have been two reports of the table catching fire. No injuries were reported.

The recall involves Classic Sport under-lit table soccer game, models X0725, X0743 and X0761.

The table soccer game has a glass playing surface and fluorescent tube lighting mounted underneath, causing the playing surface to illuminate when turned on.

The units were sold at retail outlets nationwide at Galyan's Sports and Outdoors, The Sports Chalet, and The Sports Authority (including Gart Sports, Sportmart, and Oshman's) between August 2004 and October 2004 for about $900 for the X0725 and about $600 for the Z0743 and X0761.

The units were manufactured in China.

Consumers are advised to immediately disconnect all power to the table soccer game.

Consumers may return the unit for a full refund or contact Classic Sport for a rebate for the removal of the lighting fixture or call (800) 225-5712.
