Scott Fetzer Consumer Brands of Harrison, Ohio, is recalling about 42,000 WAYNE WaterBUG GLOW Multi-Use Submersible Water Removal Pumps.

The electrical circuit board can short circuit if water gets into it, posing fire, burn and electrical shock hazards.

The firm has received 28 reports of the circuit board malfunctioning, including two minor burn injuries.

This recall involves all WAYNE WaterBUG GLOW model WWB Glow 1/6 HP Multi-Use Pump units with SKU number 57732-WYN1. The SKU number is printed on the yellow spec decal on the side of the pump. The model number is printed on the warranty tag attached to the power cord.

The pump is a residential submersible water removal pump with an automatic shut-off feature. When it is running, the plug glows green and when it shuts off, the plug glows red.

The pump has a black strap for carrying and placing the pump where it is needed.

The pumps, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at The Home Depot stores nationwide and online through www.homedepot.com and The Home Depot Pro through www.wilmar.com from July 2019, through March 2021, for about $130.
