Is Your Fax Machine Putting You At Risk?

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Hewlett-Packard, announced a voluntary recall of HP Fax 1010 and 1010xi Machines.

About 367,000 units were sold in the United States. An additional 64,000 units were sold in other countries.

An internal electrical component failure can cause overheating of the product posing a risk of burn or fire.

Hewlett-Packard has received three reports of overheating including two in the U.S. resulting in minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The HP Fax 1010 and HP Fax 1010xi models were manufactured from November 2002 through September 2004. The HP logo and the model name and number are printed on the front of the fax machine.

They were sold at electronic, computer and camera stores nationwide, as well as Web retailers from November 2002 through December 2004 for between $130 and $150. They were made in China.

Consumers should immediately disconnect the recalled fax machine from the electrical power source and contact HP to receive a rebate.
