Hanover House Voluntarily Recalls Electric Mouse Traps
WASHINGTON, D.C. --In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission, Hanover House Industries, Inc. 340
Poplar Street, Hanover, Pennsylvania today announced the
voluntary recall of approximately 24,000 Electric Mouse Traps.
Although no incidents of electric shock or injuries have been
reported, under certain circumstances these units might pose a
possible risk of electric shock hazard.
The Commission learned of the problem from the State of
Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer
Protection. The product was imported from Hong Kong by Etna
Products Co., New York, New York and was distributed to catalog
companies including Hanover House. The Electric Mouse Traps are
plastic cylinders with coils inside connected to 110 volt
household electric supply. The primary source of a possible
electrical shock hazard is associated with the bait container.
The bait container is situated on the frame directly above the
electrodes which are exposed and may be accessible when the bait
container is removed to insert the bait.
These units were sold nationwide by catalog for $9.95 each.
Consumers should stop the use of these items immediately.
Hanover House is providing a $10 credit to mousetrap purchasers
for the return of the device to Hanover House. The credit can be
applied to the purchase price of merchandise from Hanover House.
Consumers will also be refunded the cost of postage. If
consumers have any questions, they can call Hanover House
directly at 800-621-5800.
Electric Mousetrap Recalled
For your safety, immediately unplug
any of these electric mousetraps and do not use them.
