WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product.

Hazard: The base can ignite during use, posing a fire hazard to the consumer.

Description: The product is a round, light gray plastic egg incubator with a clear plastic top used to hatch many different types of eggs. The incubator is 18 inches in diameter and 12 inches tall.
