Auto Parts Seller to Recall Chinese-Made Fuse Sets

September 05, 2007

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- An auto parts seller based in California plans to recall up to nearly 295,000 Chinese-manufactured fuse sets because they have been linked to electrical fires.According to the Detroit News, Harbor Freight Tools in Camarillo, Calif., has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the recall plans. The fuse sets were sold over a two-year period.In an Aug. 10 letter to NHTSA, Harbor Freight Tools said it had received four customer complaints about the fuse sets. NHTSA has also received a couple complaints.This week, a lawyer for Harbor Freight Tools told the Detroit News the company is still investigating the problem. The recall might be narrowed to under 30,000 of the fuse sets. But the company declined to reveal the name of the Chinese manufacturer. The fuses, which were supposed to be 5-30 amps, appear to have the wrong amperages.
