Recall of Gastar CI-154TC portable cassette cooker (with photos)The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (March 4) urged consumers to stop using "Gastar CI-154TC" portable cassette cookers from the following batches.
Serial numbers (as shown on data label):
0910 000001 to 0910 002250,
0912 002251 to 0912 004500,
1008 000001 to 1008 002250, and
1010 000001 to 1010 002250
According to tests carried out, the setting of the "over-pressure safety device" in these batches is incorrect. Consequently, the over-pressure safety device may not activate within the prescribed pressure range. There is a possibility that the internal pressure inside the cooker will rise excessively under abnormal condition when the cooker is not being used properly according to the manufacturer's instructions, causing potential risk.
The Gastar Group Company Limited (Gastar) has removed all products of the above batches from points of sale and is arranging a voluntary recall of these products from users for a free safety inspection. Gastar issued a notice announcing the recall in the newspapers today.
For details of the recall, please contact Gastar Group Company Limited's hotline 2394 0060 or visit their website: http://www.gastar.com.hk/.
