CPSC and Waters Instruments Announce Recall of K-9 Electric Fence Controllers

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Waters Instruments Inc. of Rochester, Minn., is recalling about 13,000 Model K-9 Electric Fence Controllers, a box used to control the electricity in electric fences. The K-9 Electric Fence Controllers used outdoors in high humidity or wet environments can overheat and result in fire.

Waters has received three reports of overheating occurring in K-9 Electric Fence Controllers used in an unprotected outdoor setting where they are subjected to high humidity or water. Two controller cases showed signs of melting and one controller installed under a porch caused charring of the wooden flooring.

The K-9 Electric Fence Controllers with serial numbers starting with MT08096 and MT09096 have a yellow, black, and red label that reads, "American FarmWorks K-9 ELECTRIC FENCE CONTROLLER." The K-9 Electric Fence Controllers sold individually came packaged in a plastic shell with a yellow backer card. Waters also sold the units as part of a pet and garden fence kit, packaged in a yellow, black, and red box with a picture of the K-9 Electric Fence Controller printed on the box.

Hardware and farm supply stores sold the K-9 Electric Fence Controllers nationwide beginning in April 1996 for about $28.
