The recalled Niles ZR-6 Multi-Zone Audio Receivers were distributed by Niles Audio Corporation, of Miami, Florida and were manufactured in China, a country long associated with recalled childrenâ€™s toys and products, consumer products, food, and medications, to name some.
The recall was initiated due to a failure in the Niles ZR-6 Multi-Zone Audio Receiverâ€™s internal components that can cause connected loudspeakers to overheat and cause a fire, which poses a fire hazard to consumers. To date, the firm has received reports of three incidents of connected loudspeakers overheating; no injuries have been reported.
This recall involves NilesÂ® ZR-6 Multi-Zone Receivers, which are black with a blue LCD display on the right side and the Niles logo in white on the front center. The receivers measure 17 inches wide by 3.5 inches high by 15 inches deep. The model number ZR-6 is located on the lower left side of the front panel of the receivers.
The recalled Niles ZR-6 Multi-Zone Audio Receivers were sold by Audio/video/home theater custom installation professionals nationwide from July 2008 through November 2009 and retailed for about $2,000.
The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled receivers and contact Niles for a free repair kit. The repair kit includes a software update for the receivers. Niles is directly contacting consumers who purchased the recalled receivers.
