Electric Fans Recalled by Agis Enterprises Co.

Fans recalledWest Keansburg, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - Agis Enterprises Co. Inc. said today it is recalling about 11,800 electric fans. The fans could overheat during use, present an electrocution hazard and do not have sufficient guards to prevent fingers from contacting the fan blades, posing the risk of finger amputations.

The fans being recalled are a 12-inch desk fan, a 16-inch desk fan, a 16-inch stand fan, an 18- inch stand fan with three legs, and an 18-inch stand fan with a round base. Writing on all of these fans includes "AGIS" and "MADE IN TAIWAN." Discount stores in the metropolitan New York area sold these electric fans from April 1998 through September 1999 for about $50.

No injuries have been reported.
