The company has received at least 4 reports of the generators catching fire, according to a Recall Notice issued Thursday by the CPSC.
Affected products include Westinghouse iGEN2500 and iPro2500 portable generators, which were manufactured by MWE Investments and carry the Westinghouse brand name. The generators are used to power appliances, cell phones and other electronic devices.
The iGen2500 has a bright blue plastic cover with the words “Westinghouse iGen2500” printed in white lettering on the side and front of the generator.
The Westinghouse iPro2500 has a plastic gray cover and the words “Westinghouse iPro2500” printed in white lettering on the side and front of the generator. The number of watts — “2200 Running Watts and 2500 Peak Watts” — is also printed on the side.
The generators measure about 20 inches long by 18 wide inches by 11 inches tall. They weigh about 49 pounds and were sold online by major retailers from June to October 2017 for between $580 and $600.
If you purchased a recalled generator, you should stop using it immediately and contact MWE Investments to arrange a free repair.
No injuries have been associated with the recall to date, CPSC said.
