Protective covers on the compressor's motor are not made from proper flame retardant material and can ignite, posing a fire hazard to consumers. The company has received 11 reports of fires, but no injuries have been reported.

The equipment was sold at home improvement and hardware stores nationwide from September 2005 through November 2007 for between $170 and $200. For a listing of models and serial numbers included in the recall, visit http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml08/08181.html.
