Nine Inch Oscillating "Snow" Fan Recalled
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Collins Co. Ltd., Secaucus, New Jersey, to-day announced the voluntary recall of 26,000 model CYHD-103 "Snow" brand nine inch 2-speed oscillating fans. These fans were sold by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. of Bentonville, Arkansas, and Wal-Mart has agreed to assist in the recall program. The Commission staff believes that some of the fans may have a defective 2-speed control switch which could result in overheating of the fan motor and ignition of the plastic motor case, and that the product therefore presents a fixe hazard.
