Palo Alto, CA — Hewlett-Packard Co. and the U.S. Consumer Product Saftey Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled HP fax 1040 and 1050 machines in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The CPSC announced the recall on February 2, 2012 for fire and burn hazards the product poses to consumers.

The fax machines were recalled after discovering they can overheat due to an internal electrical component failure, which poses a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves HP Fax 1040 and 1050 models. The HP logo and the model number are printed on the front of the fax machine. The fax machines are dark gray and measure about 11 inches high x 14 1/2 inches wide,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact HP for a rebate on the purchase of an authorized replacement HP fax machine, or a partial rebate of certain HP ink jet printers.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact HP toll-free at (888) 654-9296 between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit http://www.hp.com/go/faxrecall/US-en.
