Washington DC - Release #07-018

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of 3,000 additional fire suppression system pumps sold under the brand names Goulds Pumps, Bell & Gossett and Red Jacket Water Products.

Units: About 3,000 additional units (18,300 units recalled in August 2006)

Manufacturer: ITT Water Technology Inc., of Auburn, N.Y.

Hazard: A mechanical part on these pumps was not fully secured, which can lead to the pump failing during use. If pumps sold with fire suppression systems fail, the risk of fire damage increases. The pump itself does not pose a fire hazard. These pumps were previously recalled for the same hazard in August 2006. The recall has now been expanded to include additional date codes and the dates sold have been expanded.

Incidents/Injuries: ITT Water Technology Inc. has received one report of a pump failing to start during a system test. No injuries have beenreported.

Description: The recalled pumps are general in purpose, but are sometimes used in fire suppression systems. The pumps were sold under the Goulds Pumps, Bell & Gossett and Red Jacket Water Products brands. The pumps can be identified by having Model NPE, NPO, MCC, MCS, SM or Series 3530 on their nameplate. Recalled pumps were manufactured between December 2005 and September 7, 2006. They have date code M05, A06, B06,C06, D06, E06, F06, G06, H06 or J06. The date code is the first three digits of the serial number on the pump name plate.

Sold at: Pump distributors nationwide from December 2005 through September 2006 for about $800.

Manufactured in: United States

Remedy: Installers of fire suppression systems will be contacted by ITT Water Technology Inc. to schedule an inspection and replacement. Please contact ITT Water Technology Inc. if you have not been contacted yet.
