Canon Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 800,000 Canon desktop copiers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

An improperly fitting electrical connection inside the copiers can cause overheating, smoking and fire. Canon U.S.A. has received six reports of NP1020 model copiers starting to smoke or catching on fire due to the problem with the electrical connection. No injuries were reported.

The repair recall includes only the following model copiers: PC6, PC6RE, PC65, PC7, PC7RE, PC8, PC11, PC11RE, PC12, NP1010, and NP1020. The model number is on the front panel of the unit. The recalled copiers were manufactured between 1987 and 1998.

The copiers were sold by dealers, national retailers and office supply stores nationwide from January 1987 through December 1999 for between U.S. $1,500 and $2,300.
