NZXT Recalls H1 Computer Cases Due to Fire Hazard

👤by Michael Pabia Comments 📅13.02.2021 00:03:16


The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) together with Health Canada issues a recall of the NZXT H1 mini-ITX chassis due to fire hazard. The recall was conducted voluntarily by NZXT under the CSPC’s Fast Track Recall Process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.

Earlier this month, NZXT CEO Johnny Hou released a statement and update with the NZXT H1 chassis safety issue and prompted to send an additional new PCIe Gen3 assembly aside from the nylon screws sent from the first repair kit. However, certain tech media outlets still insist on a total product recall. Today, NZXT pushes a recall of the product with the help of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
