Hawthorne Hydroponics Recalls Humidifiers Due to Fire and Shock Hazards

Hawthorne Hydroponics has issued a recall for Ideal-Air 175-pint industrial grade humidifiers. The humidifiers can overheat while in use, posing fire and shock hazards. The firm is aware of 5 incidents of the humidifier overheating and no injuries have been reported.

The recalled humidifiers are black and have the “Ideal-Air” logo printed near the bottom. The units were sold at GreenCoast Hydroponics, Growers House, Hydro Pros, Urban Garden Center, Red Flag Products stores and other gardening stores in Canada from October 2017 through June 2018 for about $500.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled humidifiers and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund of the purchase price in the form of store credit.
