Canon has issued a voluntary recall of about 800,000 desktop copiers due to a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has advised.
Officials with Canon said that an improperly fitted electrical connection inside the copiers could cause overheating, smoking and fire. The repair recall includes the following model Canon copiers: PC6, PC6RE, PC65, PC7, PC7RE, PC8, PC11, PC11RE, PC12, NP1010 and NP1020.
The copiers were sold from January 1987 through December 1999 for between $1,500 US and $2,300 US. Consumers are advised to stop using the copiers immediately and contact Canon of a free repair.
