January 11, 2013 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says Heico Lighting, a division of EMD Technologies, in Montreal, Que., has announced a voluntary recall of the neon power supply transformers. The transformers do not meet the UL standard for this product and pose a fire risk. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
As of January 8, 2013, no incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves about 3,900 neon power supply transformers designed to power commercial signs. They are in black metal boxes about 4.5-in. long by 3.5-in. wide with rows of vents on all sides. “Heico Lighting” and the model information are printed on a plate on the transformer. The recalled models include Platinum-9000-30, Platinum-10000-30, Platinum-12000-30, TFT-04PL-6000-30, and TFT-06PL-9000-30.
The units were sold by Heico Lighting and its distributors nationwide from December 2011 through May 2012. The units were manufactured in Canada.
