Zebra Technologies Recalls Power Supply Units for Thermal Printers Due to Fire Hazard

December 21, 2016

This recall involves power supply units that serve as the power source for models of Zebra brand thermal industrial printers used to make bar codes and other commercial labels. The power supply units were either sold as after-market kits or included with the sale of the following models of Zebra brand printers: G-Series (GK420D/T, GX420D/T, GX430D/T), GT Series (GT800, GT810, GT820, GT830), ZP455, HC100, P1XX Series (P100, P110, P120), and ZXP3. The Zebra logo or FSP North America logo, date code, and part number are printed on the power supply. Date codes between 1039XX through 1052XX and 1101XX through 1152XX. 

The firm has received three reports of the power supply units overheating or catching fire, including a fire that spread from the connector to the printer, damaging the printer and surrounding workspace. No injuries have been reported.

This Butler recall presents a potential avenue of recovery about which subrogation professionals should be aware when evaluating fires in residential and commercial losses.
