Re: Voluntary Recall of the Ideal-Air 175-pint Industrial Grade Humidifier

Hawthorne Hydroponics LLC is conducting a voluntary recall of the Ideal-Air 175-pint Industrial Grade Humidifier manufactured beginning in July 2017 and distributed to retailers between October 2017 and April 2018 (UPC: 849969025231).

There have been no consumer reports of injury. We decided nonetheless to recall the product. It can overheat and conceivably pose a remote fire or shock risk under some circumstances. The voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada.

Please examine your inventory to determine whether you have any of the potentially-affected humidifiers. A humidifier is subject to this recall only if it has the UPC identified above.

If you have such humidifiers in inventory:

  1. Please let us know how many of each model of the affected humidifiers you have.
  2. Please do not sell or deliver affected units.
  3. Please destroy the unit(s) pursuant to our in-field destruction specifications (attached), including sending Hawthorne verification of the destruction, at which point Hawthorne will issue credit for the unit(s).

Hawthorne Hydroponics LLC appreciates your business, cooperation, and understanding. Should you have any questions, please contact me.
