Due to technical failure causing a fire A campaign for the recall of more than 100 Rexel Promax paper shredders


The Public Authority for Consumer Protection, in cooperation with ACCO Brand, has launched a re call to 105 Rexel Promax REX823 and RSX1035 paper shredders, which were distributed between December 2016 and May 2019.



The recall comes because machines may be disrupted during operation with the possibility of explosion and thus cause fire and burns in consumers or in neighboring objects such as furniture and others, so the company will replace machines to consumers.

These recalls emphasize the efforts exerted by the Authority in all areas related to consumer safety, in order to preserve the lives of consumers and provide them with the necessary protection, in line with its continuous keenness to carry out continuous reviews of all products offered in the Sultanate's markets.
