Sundance Spas of Chino, Calif., is recalling about 29,000 Jacuzzi Hot Tubs and Sundance Spas sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
The temperature sensor can relay incorrect water temperatures and cause the water to be hotter than the set temperature, posing injury (heat stroke) and thermal burn hazards.
The firm has received 185 reports of inaccurate temperature readings. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Jacuzzi J-200, J-300, J-400 and J-500 collection hot tubs and Sundance Spas 680, 780, 880 and 980 Series spas.
The model number and serial number are engraved into a silver plate in the equipment bay of the hot tub.
The serial number can be entered into the recall links, www.sundancespas.com/en-us/recall.html or www.jacuzzi.com/en-us/recall.html to identify hot tubs with the recalled sensor.
The spas and hot tubs, manufactured in Mexico, were sold at authorized Sundance Spas or Jacuzzi Hot Tubs dealers nationwide from July 2021, through December 2022, for between $6,500 and $30,000.
What to do
Consumers should use an accurate external thermometer to confirm the water temperature to be no higher than 104 degrees prior to entering the hot tub to prevent injuries and burns.
