Epson Recalls Power Adapters Sold With Epson Scanners Due to Burn and Fire HazardsEpson is recalling about 314,000 power adapters sold with Epson scanners in the United States and 25,000 in Canada.

The power adapters can overheat, melt, and catch fire, posing burn and fire hazards.

Epson is aware of 15 incidents worldwide of the adaptor melting or catching fire, resulting in property damage. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the power adapter sold with Epson V-series (V30/V33/V37/V300/V330/V370) scanners. The recalled adapters are black with a power cord that connects to the scanner and to an electrical outlet. “EPSON” and internal part code “EADP-16CB B” are printed on the label of the adaptor.

The scanners with power adapters were sold at Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, and department stores nationwide from January 2010 through December 2015. The cost was between $55 and $80 for the scanner and adapter.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled adapters and contact Epson to receive a free replacement, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.
