PRODUCT: Onika Steam/Dry Spray Iron - Bargain Wholesale, of City of Commerce, Calif., is recalling about 7,000 units of the Onika Steam/Dry Spray Iron. The unlabeled iron is made of gray plastic. Writing on the electric cord reads, in part, "CH0001708-91." The iron, along with a water measuring cup and a nap brush, is packaged in a red box labeled, in part, "Onika Steam/Dry Spray Iron ... ZQYD150g ... UL ... Made in Taiwan." Discount stores in the western U.S. sold these irons from January 1997 through June 1998 for about $4.

PROBLEM: The irons have inappropriate size wiring, which can cause a fire. The plastic housings of the irons are not resistant to ignition. Additionally, the irons present a potential scald hazard during use. If they are tilted downward, a shower of hot water is unexpectedly emitted.
