WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm below. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of product: Portable oscillating electric fans

Does anybody actually CHECK these things as they come into the country?.
I mean out of the 2500 that were sold surely someone must have thought the wiring was too small.
