3M Air Purifiers Recalled Due to Fire Hazard
If you have a Filtrete air purifier, manufactured by 3M, your device may have been recalled. The air purifiers are white, plastic devices that are powered by wall current. These devices have a two speed fan and there are two models affected. The Ultra Quiet air filter carries the model number FAPOO-RS. The second device recalled, the Maximum Allergan, carries the model number FAPOO-L. Check on the bottom of the product and look for a serial number beginning with E, F, G, H, I or J.
These devices were recalled because there have been two incidents reported to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. One incident involved one of these devices overheating. The other incident actually involved one of the devices catching fire.
