The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (August 19) urged consumers to stop using "Bonaqua 900" hot & cold mini water dispensers for safety reasons.
A recent investigation by the department revealed that the thermostat connector of the "Bonaqua 900" hot & cold mini water dispenser might overheat if exposed to sources of heat over a prolonged period of time.
According to the supplier, Echo Rich Industries Ltd, the hot & cold mini water dispensers were supplied by Swire Coca Cola HK to the local market between October 2006 and December 2007.
The supplier has undertaken to conduct a product recall of the concerned hot & cold mini water dispensers and will post safety notices announcing the recall in newspapers today and tomorrow (August 20).
For details of the recall, consumers should contact Swire's hotline 2210 3166 or visit its website: http://www.bonaqua.com.hk/.
