CSA INTERNATIONAL AND ZOELLER PUMP COMPANY ANNOUNCE A VOLUNTARY RECALL OF SEPTIC PUMPS DUE TO SHOCK HAZARD
In cooperation with CSA International, Zoeller Pump Company of Louisville, Kentucky, USA is voluntarily recalling 233 septic pumps in Canada. These septic pumps incorporate a 6 m (20 ft) black power supply cord with a plug end. A potential manufacturing defect on the power supply cord could affect the grounding of the pump and could pose an electrical shock hazard to consumers.
There have been no reports of incidents or injuries received.
The recalled Zoeller brand septic pumps have date codes 0906 and 1006. On models 53, 57, 151, 152 and 153, the date code is printed on the nameplate on the top of the pump. On Model WM48, the date code is printed on the tag near the plug. “Philippines” is stamped on the plug. A list of specific part numbers, model numbers, date codes and UPC codes can be found at www.zoeller.comwww.zoeller.com. Pumps that have already been hard wired during installation (ie. where the plug has been removed) are not included in the recall.
Models 151 and 152 septic pumps were sold in Canada from September 2006 through December 2006. Although none of the other models noted were sold directly into Canada, they were sold in the US during the same time period and are identified in this recall to address product that may have been shipped into Canada through a US distributor.
Consumers should immediately stop using the septic pumps and contact Zoeller to schedule an inspection, replacement and return of affected pumps. For additional information, consumers are advised to contact Zoeller Pump Co. at (800) 928-7867 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, e-mail Zoeller at [email protected] , or visit the firm’s Web site atwww.zoeller.com m.
