Brower recalls top hatch egg incubators due to fire hazard

An egg incubator sold at certain farm and ranch retailers and manufactured by Houghton, Iowa-based Hawkeye Steel Products' Brower divison is being recalled.

The base can ignite during use, posing a fire hazard to the consumer, according to a release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. No injuries have been reported, but Brower received three reports of fires, resulting in property damage.

About 2,500 of the Model TH120 Brower Top Hatch Incubators are being recalled. The products were sold at Mills Fleet Farm, Stromberg's Chick and Gamebirds, Unlimited and other farm supply retailers from January 2009 to September 2010 for about $190.
