Nestlé is recalling cold and hot water dispensers after it was noted that the product could overheat posing a fire hazard. Regulations composed by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have subjected Nestlé Waters North America to a voluntary recall.
The water dispenser recall affects roughly 190 units. Complaints indicate that screw that hold the heat band can become detached and break. This causes the units to overheat posing a fire hazard.
The CPSC urges users to discontinue use of the dispensers and unplug them from electrical outlets. Fortunately, not deaths or injuries have been linked to the defect.
Water dispensers were sold and distributed to businesses and residential customers in Florida, Massachusetts, and New York with a water delivery contract. Customers that rent the water dispensers will be contacted directly by the company.
