Brower Recalls Top Hatch Egg Incubators Due to Fire Hazard
Hazard: The base can ignite during use, posing a fire hazard to the consumer.
Incidents/Injuries: Brower received three reports of fires, all of which resulted in property damage. No injuries have been reported.
Description: The product is a round, light gray plastic egg incubator with a clear plastic top used to hatch many different types of eggs. The incubator is 18 inches in diameter and 12 inches tall. The recalled Model TH120 Brower Top Hatch Incubator has two main components – a tray and a base. A crank arm and a turner motor are located in the base. The crank arm snaps into place on the turner motor. The motor turns the crank arm which, in turn, rotates the tray. The clear plastic top has an engraving which says, “THIS SIDE UP.”
The model number is located on the side of the packaging box.
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact the company for a free replacement base.
