United Pet Group has issued a recall of Top Fin Power Filters for aquariums.
A conductor on the pump motor can become exposed and electrify the aquarium water, posing a shock hazard to consumers. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled filters by unplugging them from the power supply and removing from the aquarium.
The recall involves five models of Top Fin Power Filters, including model numbers 10, 20, 30, 40 and 75. The filters were also sold as part of Top Fin 5.5 and 10 gallon LED aquarium kits.
They were sold exclusively at PetSmart stores and online between September and December 2015.
Those who purchased the filter may contact United Pet Group for a free replacement. United Pet Group can be reached at 800-338-4896 or online at www.unitedpetgroup.com.
