Cambridge Elevating is recalling 1,700 residential elevators, citing the risk of injury or death to children.
According to the announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC):
“Young children can become entrapped in the space between the exterior landing (hoistway) door and the interior elevator car door or gate if there is a hazardous gap between the doors and suffer serious injuries or death when the elevator is called to another floor.”
The recalled elevators were sold from 1991 through August 2022, and bear the model name Elmira or Heritage.
Consumers are instructed to keep young children away from their Cambridge Elevating unit until “space guards” are installed to “correct any hazardous gap.” Cambridge Elevating will provide space guards free of charge, with installation assistance upon request.
