Certain air movers have been recalled over possible fire hazards, according to several news agencies that cover recall alerts.
The official announcement was recently issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and according to the information found in this statement, over 53,000 units of Air movers/blowers manufactured by EDIC, of Los Angeles, California were manufactured with an internal electrical capacitor that could suddenly fail and overheat, which could eventually pose a fire hazard to users.
According to the firm, these blowers are used to turn floors in homes and buildings completely dry after sections were cleaned. This issue affects products with the model numbers 3004AD and 3004ADxxx although products with the letter N do not pose any risks to consumers.
The federal agency has stated that these recalled products were sold between the months of January 2003 and September of 2011 all across the United States. Consumers with these blowers or air movers in their possession should contact the manufacturer as soon as possible. The company has stated that a complete repair kit will be shipped to all affected costumers for free.
Hopefully, EDIC is able to carry on with this recall campaign in a successful manner. I’ve seen many incidents caused by recalled products in the past and urge consumers to stay on top of all recall alerts so potentially hazardous situations can be avoided.
