According to the Australia Competition & Consumer Commission, the Bose home theatre kits which are manufactured by a US Company are a potential fire hazard "when the voltage from the wall outlet is 220 Volts or higher," says the recall notice.
Several Bose dealers that SmartHouse spoke to said they were not aware of the recall. SmartHouse and ChannelNews have also received no notification of the recall other than that from the ACCC.
Adam Merlino of Advance Audio said that he was not aware of a Bose recall despite being a Bose dealer.
The models affected include the CineMate GS Series II and CineMate Series II home theatre ranges due to these units posing a potential fire hazard.
The barcode numbers of the recalled models are: 051361, 051363, 051364, 051365, 051466, 051468, 051469, 051470, 052751, 052752, 052753, 052921, 055303, 055371, 055481, 056671, 056673 and 057971.
"A component in the Acoustimass module could fail and present a potential fire hazard when the voltage from the wall outlet is 220 Volts or higher," says the recall notice.
These products were sold at Bose retail stores and through Bose's authorised resellers between 1 September 2009 and 12 September 2012.
Affected users should immediately stop using the products, unplug them from the wall outlet and contact Bose for a replacement or refund. Bose can be contacted on 1800 775 553.
