2 Million Dehumidifiers Recalled For Fire and Burn Hazard





Two million dehumidifiers, sold under at least 20 well known different brand names, have been recalled by The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)

On Wednesday, the CPSC announced the recall over concerns that the affected products can overheat and cause fires, therefore “posing fire and burn hazards.”

The dehumidifiers listed were sold at stores such as Lowes, Costco, Walmart, Menards and other retailers nationwide from February 2009 to August 2017 at a cost between $120 and $430.

Currently, at least 2 million of the faulty dehumidifiers are being recalled in the U.S., while around 380,000 units are similarly being recalled in Canada, and about 25,000 in Mexico, per the CPSC.

At least 107 incidents have been reported to the CPSC of the dehumidifiers “overheating and/or catching fire,” creating $17 million in property damage. No injuries have been reported.
