Recall: Euky Bear Warm Steam Vaporiser - Humidifier
Felton Grimwade & Bosisto’s Pty Ltd is recalling the below batches of Euky Bear Warm Steam Vaporiser - Humidifier because the enclosed heating element can overheat.
If you do not turn off the device after steaming has stopped, the base of the blue heating module may overheat and disintegrate, producing smoke and fumes. The instructions for use and warning labels on the device state the device should be turned off after steaming has stopped.
No other batches of Euky Bear (Warm Steam) Vaporiser are affected by this problem.
What is the problem?
Euky Bear Warm Steam Vaporiser- Humidifier contains a blue heating module made of a particular polymer.
The device must be turned off at the power point after steaming has stopped to allow it to cool. If this doesn’t happen, the base of the blue heating module may overheat and disintegrate producing smoke and fumes. If the heating module finger is exposed, this could cause burns to the user.
What should I do?
If you have purchased a Euky Bear (Warm Steam) Vaporiser and it is labelled with one of the batch numbers above, stop using your device and contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a replacement. Alternatively, you may return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
The batch number is on the base of the box or the underside of the blue heating module (next to the power cord). See the pictures below.
No alternative stock is currently available, but it is expected to be available from December 2023. Consumers will be offered an equivalent replacement in the first instance.
