&The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with Campbell Hausfeld, has announced a voluntary recall of approximately 233,000 Campbell Hausfeld and Husky Air Compressors because the protective covers on the compressor’s motor are not made from proper flame retardant material and can ignite, posing a fire hazard.
