  • Important Info-Fire Sprinkler Recall

    WASHINGTON (AP) - It may become easier for people to get repair
    work done on some of the 35 million fire sprinklers that were
    recalled two years ago.
    The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Central Sprinkler
    Company of Lansdale, Pa., announced an update Wednesday to the
    voluntary recall that involved sprinklers that may not work during
    fires.
    Terms of the original recall required that consumers use a
    contractor from the company. The revision means that people now can
    hire their own contractor. Reimbursement for the labor will be
    subject to approval, so the federal agency advises consumers to
    contact the company before calling a contractor.
    The sprinklers in question have heads with O-ring seals that can
    corrode or degrade over time and might keep them from turning on
    during a fire.
    The recalled sprinkler heads have the words "CENTRAL" or
    "STAR", the letters "CSC", the letter "G" in a triangle, or a
    star-shaped symbol stamped on either the metal frame or the
    flower-shaped metal piece at one end of the sprinkler head.
    Claims for more than 13 million sprinklers have been received,
    company spokeswoman Anne Buchanan said, and about 6 million have
    been replaced.
    The company, an affiliate of Tyco Fire Products, is providing
    the replacement sprinkler heads free of charge.
    Also included in the recall were 167,000 sprinklers sold by Gem
    Sprinkler Co. and Star Sprinkler Inc., which are also owned by
    Tyco. Consumers can call 1-800-871-3492 for more information.
