LOWE'S RECALLS ELECTRIC BUG KILLERS
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Lowe's Companies, Inc., of North Wilkesboro, NC, is voluntarily recalling model BK-2000-7 electric bug killers. Lowe's Companies Inc., is taking this action because infrequent cleaning of insect accumulation in the units in conjunction with high-humidity conditions can cause the products to catch fire. Lowe's is aware of 14 fires with this model, four of which caused property damage.
