WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of more than one million Hewlett-Packard fax machines Thursday. The machines can overheat, posing a fire hazard.
The machines affected are the 1040 and 1050 models (see attached images.)
Hewlett-Packard says it is aware of seven reports of fax machines overheating and catching fire. In one case there was significant property damage.
The fax machines were sold at electronics, computer and camera stores nationwide and online at www.shopping.hp.com as well as other websites, from November 2004 through December 2011 for between $90 and $120.
Some of the recalled fax machines were replacement units for a previous recall involving HP fax model 1010 in June 2008.
If you have one of these machines, stop using it immediately.
