Atlanta, Georgia-based Reliance Worldwide Corp. is recalling about 26,000 Cash Acme Heatguard brand Temperature Actuated Flow Reducing (TAFR) devices after learning that the device may fail to reduce the flow of water when it comes in contact with high temperature water, posing a risk of burning and scalding, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported on July 16.

The affected TAFR name and their model numbers are: Shower Safe Assembly (SD-LF #24718), Tap Safe Assembly (TD-LF #24719), and Shower Safe Assembly (SD-01 # 24110-0000). These devices are designed to reduce the flow of water in lavatory faucets and showers when the water reaches 120 degree°F.

The defective products were sold at different plumbing retailers and wholesalers nationwide between December 2014 and May 2015. Customers are asked to contact the company immediately for a free replacement device with installation instructions.
