August 14, 2020 — Intertex recalled 189,000 air blowers that pose a fire hazard, especially when multiple blowers are “daisy chained” together.
The recall involves several models of air blowers, including:
- B-Air® VP-33
- B-Air® PB-25
- B-Air® FX-1
- B-Air® GP-33
- BlueDri BD-ONE-29
- BlueDri Pro BDPRO-33
- BlueDri BD AXIAL-25
- Soleaire® Jetster
The air blowers are primarily used to repair water damage after flooding or natural disasters affect commercial or industrial facilities. The blowers help dry out floors and carpets to prevent mold growth.
The recalled blowers have outlets on the side of the unit that allow multiple blowers to be “daisy chained” (several blowers plugged together in series), or other devices to be plugged into the unit.
Unfortunately, these outlets do not have a circuit breaker. If the outlet is overloaded or short-circuited, it can overheat and ignite a fire.
The blowers were sold at Home Depot and Lowes, online at www.aerindustries.com, www.amazon.com, www.ebay.com, www.homedepot.com, and www.lowes.com, between January 2008 and July 2020 for $120-$300.
