8:55 p.m. 5/20/2014 - I picked up my [REDACTED] fan to change the batteries and when I slid the battery cover off and turned it upside down to pull the batteries out, battery acid splashed out on my hand. I thought it was water and just dried my hand, but then within minutes my hand started burning terribly and I realized then it was acid. I kept under cold running water and my left hand index finger and knuckle blistered and turned red. Skin cracked in one place. Repeatedly ran cold water over and tried vinegar to stop the burn with the water. I used triple antibiotic+pain relief last night. The batteries were RAYOVAC HEAVY DUTY D CELL and UPC code was 012800516896.
