Blowers recalled by Intertex due to fire hazard

Intertex Recalls Blowers Due to Fire Hazard

Intertex is recalling about 189,000 B-Air, BlueDri, BlueDri Pro, and Soleaire Blowers in the United States and about 8,153 in Canada.

The utility outlets on the side of the blowers aren’t protected by a circuit breaker. If the outlet becomes overloaded or short-circuited, it could overheat, posing a fire hazard.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves several models of centrifugal and axial blowers sold under the B-Air, BlueDri, BlueDri Pro, and Soleaire brands. Each blower has convenience outlets on the side of the unit to allow the blowers to be “daisy chained” – several blowers plugged together in series – or other devices to be plugged in.

These blowers were sold in a variety of models and colors. Model numbers can be found on the rear of the products.
