Jason International Has Recalled Air-Whirlpool Baths

North Little Rock, AR (SafetyAlerts) - Jason International Inc. has recalled about 800 Jason AirMasseurâ„¢ and Air Whirlpool Baths. Air baths release heated bubbles into the water. A heating element on these baths can fail to shut off, posing a fire hazard.

Jason has received one report of a fire involving one of these baths, which resulted in minor damage. No injuries have been reported.

The baths were sold under the brand name Jason AirMasseurâ„¢ and Air-Whirlpool Baths, which is written on the bath's control keypad. They have a serial number located on the underside of the bath that can be viewed by removing the equipment access panel. Consumers must check with the firm to determine if their bath is included in the recall.

Plumbing distributors and kitchen and bath showrooms sold these baths nationwide from January 2002 through September 2002 for about $3,000.

Consumers should check their bath's serial number and call to determine if their bath is part of the recall. They should call the Jason Technical Service Department at (800) 255-5766 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's web site at If a bath is included in the recall, consumers should disconnect the electrical supply to their bath by unplugging the equipment or by switching off the circuit breaker immediately, and schedule an appointment for a free repair.
