Insinkerator recall

The air activated switch mounts to the sink or countertop and is an alternative to the traditional wall switch for a garbage disposal.

InSinkErator has recalled its single outlet SinkTop switch accessory for garbage disposals. Water was found to get into the power module, posing a fire hazard.

About 28 of the accessories were sold in Canada. The recall by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) was in conjunction with Health Canada.

The model numbers are 76703, STS-SOSN, 78251 and 74300, and can be found on the back of the power module.

InSinkErator is written on the front of the power module. The switches were sold with a chrome, white, or satin nickel button/bezel as an accessory for garbage disposals.  Garbage disposals activated by a wall switch are not affected by this recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled switches and can contact InSinkErator for a free SinkTop switch replacement.

InSinkErator has received 40 reports of water causing overheating damage to the power module and outlet beneath the sink.  www.cpsc.gov www.insinkerator.com
