Recall DetailsUnits: About 15 millionDescription: This recall involves APC 7 and 8 series SurgeArrest surge protectors manufactured before 2003. The model and serial numbers are located on a label on the bottom of the surge protector. The two numbers that follow the first letter or letters in the serial number sequence indicate the year of manufacture. The unit is included in the recall if the numbers are 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 00, 01 or 02. APC and the words Personal, Professional, Performance or Network are printed on the surge protectors. The following model numbers are included in this recall.

Any electronic product can fail, especially as it gets older or if it’s abused or misused. Nearly half of all fires in the U.S. involve some type of electrical malfunction. That’s why it’s so important to be alert for the warning signs of a possible problem.

“If you smell something or feel something that’s extremely hot, stop using it and find out why it’s acting up,” advised John Drengenberg, director of consumer safety at Underwriters Labs.
