SUBJECT: Recall of "Star" brand "Dry-Type" Fire Sprinklers by Mealane Corporation


In cooperation with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Mealane Corporation of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is voluntarily recalling "Star" brand fire sprinklers manufactured from 1961 through 1976. These sprinklers could likely fail in a fire, exposing the public to bodily injury or death. These sprinklers have been primarily installed in nursing homes and hospitals. They may also be found in schools, loading docks, warehouses and cold storage areas in supermarkets nationwide. The Star sprinklers being recalled are "dry-type" models D-1, RD-1, RE-1, E-1 and ME-1.

The name "Star" appears on the sprinkler, along with the model number and date of manufacture. With "dry-type" sprinklers, positions of the pipe do not have water in them until the sprinkler activates.

Mealane Corporation is urging consumers and property owners to determine whether their facilities contain any Star D-1, RD-1, RE-1, and ME-1 sprinkler models made from 1961 to 1976 and to call the Star Sprinkler Recall Hotline at 1-800-866-7807 or visit the special web site, www.star-recall.com, for more information.
