Epson Recalls Flawed Printers in China

According to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People’s Republic of China, Epson China will recall 169,452 ink jet printers in the Chinese mainland, due to design flaws in their power system protection.

Epson China announced the recall will begin on August 28; it will involve 16 models, including ME-10, L351, L353, L211, L358, L301, L303, L111, ME-101, ME OFFICE 535, ME-401, ME OFFICE 570W, M201, M101, L551 and ME-303. These printers were produced between Sept 12, 2011 and June 6, 2013.

Epson stated that in certain rare cases, continuous and extreme power surges—far in excess of those expressed in the product specifications—may cause fire in the power unit. Also, Epson China will provide a free repair service to the flawed products and undertake overall inspection of them, the statement said.
