WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Thrifty Paper Co. Inc., of Hempstead, NY, is voluntarily recalling about 26,000 electric fans. These electric fans have undersized wiring, use a power plug that is not polarized, overheat and have an improperly sized grill, all of which could cause electrocution, electric shock, fire, and finger entrapment hazards to consumers.

CPSC and Thrifty Paper Co. have not received any reports of incidents. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.
