Norelco Recalls Rechargeable Electric Shaver Stands
WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission, "Norelco" Consumer Products Division announced a
voluntary recall/replacement program for stands included with model HP
1337 and HP 1323 rechargeable electric shavers produced in 1986, due to
a possible shock or minor burn hazard associated with the rechargeable
a shaver stand. Shaver stands produced before 1986 are not known to
contain this hazard, which occurs on initial use only.
Norelco has reports of 30 incidents in which the cord shorted out
upon being initially plugged into the wall while connected to the
rechargeable stand. There are approximately 4 reports of minor personal
injury. This product was introduced in 1984. Approximately 500,000 have
been distributed.
These shavers retail for approximately $79.95 and have been sold
nationwide. The stand is black and has the word "ROTATRACT" printed on
it in white lettering. Approximately 60,000 of the stands are estimated
to have reached consumers in 1986.
If you have a new Norelco shaver with a stand, do not plug it in.
Return the stand only, not the shaver or the cord, to Norelco Service,
Inc., Dept. 1337, 2100 East Valencia, Fullerton, CA 92631. Norelco will
replace the stand and refund your postage. You may continue to use the
shaver with the cord while your stand accessory is being serviced. If
you have any questions, please call Norelco directly at 800-227-1032.
