WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Crystal Mountain Water Cooler Corp., of Alberta, Canada is voluntarily recalling about 12,000 hot & cold water coolers. Approximately eighty percent of the water dispensers were sold in the United States. The hot & cold water dispenser's heater band can short circuit, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

Crystal Mountain Water Cooler Corp. has received about 20 reports of the water cooler's insulation smoking, or igniting the unit. Damages ranged from minor smoke and fire damage up to $200,000 in property damage.
