CPSC, Tristar Products Inc. Announce Recall of Electric Pressure Washers
Note: Phone Number Change.
The following product safety recall was conducted voluntarily by the firm in cooperation with the CPSC. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Name of Product: Turbo Tiger Power Washer
Units: 1,000
Importer: Tristar Products Inc., of Fairfield, N.J.
Manufacturer: Zhejiang Anlu Cleaning Machinery Co. Ltd., of China
Hazard: These electric pressure washers do not have a ground fault
circuit interrupter (GFCI) on the power cord, which poses a serious
electrocution hazard if the unit comes into contact with water.
Incidents/Injuries: None
Description: The recalled electric pressure washers are yellow with a black three-prong power cord. A label on the front reads "Turbo Tiger Power Washer."
Sold by: Tristar Products Inc. through direct-response television
commercials shown nationwide, as well as on Tristar's Web site
www.tvinventions.com. They were sold between June 2002 and June 2003 for
about $190, including shipping and handling. Turbo Tiger units sold
through The Home Shopping Network or other sources that already have a
GFCI at the end of the power cord are not included in this recall.
Remedy: Consumers should stop using the electric pressure washers
immediately. Tristar will send consumers a portable GFCI that can be
attached to the end of the power cord, which will provide consumers with
shock protection. If you purchased your pressure washer from a pre-
recorded television commercial or www.tvinventions.com and you have not
received the portable GFCI, please contact Tristar to receive a GFCI.
