PhotoReliance Worldwide of Atlanta, Ga., is recalling about 26,000 Cash Acme Heatguard Temperature Actuated Flow Reducing (TAFR) Devices.

The thermal element in the TAFR can fail to operate, causing the users to come in contact with water that is hotter than expected. This poses a risk of scalding injury.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The Cash Acme Heatguard brand Temperature Actuated Flow Reducing (TAFR) device is a metal, cylindrical-shaped thermostatic device used on lavatory faucets and showers. TAFR flow reducers sense high temperature water and reduce water flow if the temperature achieves 120° F (49° C). These devices may be used in private and public housing, child care centers, hospitals, hotels and motels.

The following three TAFR models sold from December 2014 to May 2015 are included in the recall:

TAFR Name Model Number 
Shower Safe Assembly

SD-LF #24718

Tap Safe Assembly TD-LF #24719
Shower Safe Assembly SD-01 #24110-0000
 

The devices, manufactured in the U.S, were sold at plumbing retailers and wholesalers including: Antiscald, Inc., Best Plumbing Specialties, Coley Electrical and Plumbing Supply, Dutton Lainson Company, FEI, Grainger, HD Supply, M-One Specialties, Security Supply, The Alzheimer’s Store, TM O’Donnell, and Westco Pipe and Supply from December 2014, through May 2015, for about $30.

 

Consumers should use caution when turning on faucets and showers with the recalled TAFR device installed and immediately contact Reliance Worldwide to receive a free replacement TAFR. Consumers will be mailed a replacement TAFR device with step-by-step installation instructions, and a postage pre-paid envelope to return the recalled TAFR to Reliance Worldwide.

Consumers may contact Reliance Worldwide toll-free (844) 441-1496 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday.
