The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Hewlett-Packard (HP) issued a voluntary recall of HP 1040 and 1050 fax machines on February 2, 2012. There have been reports of the fax machines overheating and catching fire, resulting in property damage.
The recalled fax machines have the HP logo and the model number labeled on the front of the fax machine. The fax machines were sold in electronic, computer and camera stores nationwide. The fax machines were also sold on the HP website. The recalled fax machines were sold from November 2004 to November 2011. Some of the recalled fax machines were replacement units for the previously recalled HP 1010 fax machine in June 2008.
Consumers should stop using the recalled fax machines and disconnect them from the electrical outlet. HP is giving consumers rebates for the recalled fax machines.
If you have received property damage or have been injured after using an HP fax machine, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact the trusted Knoxville product liability attorneys at Greg Coleman Law for a free and confidential case evaluation.
