Ecovent Announces Recall of Room Sensors Due to Shock Hazard
The company believes that about 600 sensors are potentially defective
Ecovent is recalling about 600 room sensors due to a shock hazard. The cover can come off during normal use, exposing high voltage components.
The sensors plug into an electrical outlet and measure room temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. The unit also provides electrical outlets in the center of the device and USB ports on the sides. Ecovent, model number SS1, part number 901-00001, and date numbers 4415-5215 and 0116-0916 are printed on a label on the back of the device.
The sensors were sold online at Ecovent's website from December 2015 through April 2016 for between $100 and $150.
The company has received two incident reports of the faceplate falling off, though no injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled units. Ecovent has contacted consumers via email and phone notifications, sent the replacement parts, and provided return postage for affected parts. If consumers have not been notified, they should contact the firm.
For more information, consumers may call the company at (855) 777-0105.
