In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Daikin has recalled select Streamer air purifiers.
The air purifier’s circuit board can overheat and cause the air purifier to catch on fire, noted the company. The recall involves Daikin brand streamer portable air purifiers with model number MC75KSU. The air purifiers are portable and are designed to remove dust, particles and allergens from indoor air in the home or office. They are cream-colored and measure about 23 inches tall by 15 inches wide by 8 inches deep. “Daikin” is printed on the front of the units. The model number is located on a rating plate on the lower right side of the units.
About 625 of the air purifiers were sold in the United States and 125 in Canada. The units were sold by Goodman Manufacturing, HVAC contractors to consumers and online at Amazon.com from December 2010 through October 2014 for about $540.
No incidents or injuries have been reported. Consumers are instructed to immediately unplug the recalled air purifiers and contact Daikin for a full refund or a free replacement air purifier.
