The U.S. Concumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Acer America Corp. has issued a recall for Acer Predator desktop PC's.

Acer has received two reports of the computers short circuiting, causing melted components and external casing. Both events occurred outside the U.S. Apparently some of the insulation on the computer's internal wiring can become bent or stripped, causing the wires to overheat while the product is in use.
