Canon Recalls Flammable Desktop Copiers
In the latest CE recall to involve products with the potential to burst into flames, Canon U.S.A., Inc. advised customers Monday to stop using about 800,000 desktop copiers and return them for repair. A faulty connection inside the copiers can cause overheating, smoking and fire, according to a statement released by Canon and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Six reports of the NP1020 model copiers starting to smoke or actually catching fire have been reported, but none of the incidents have involved any injuries. Other affected copiers include the PC6, PCRE, PC65, PC7, PC7RE, PC8, PC11, PC11RE, PC12 and NP1010. Recalled models were sold between January 1987 and December 1999.
