About 64,000 Chinese-made portable air compressors sold at Advance Auto Parts stores are being recalled due to fire and electrical-shock hazards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The agency said the Strike Force air compressors, supplied by All-Power America in City of Industry, California, had motors that could overheat and ignite the protective cover, posing a fire hazard. The CPSC also said the cover might not prevent internal components from being touched, posing an electrical-shock hazard. No injuries have been reported, but there have been four reports of fires. The recall involves some of the air compressors sold at Advance Auto Parts stores nationwide and online from October 2006 through December 2007 for about $90. The CPSC says consumers should stop using the affected air compressors and return them to any Advance Auto Parts store for a full refund.
