The Consumer Product Safety Commission is re-annoucing a major recall for popular dehumidifies.
The Gree dehumidifiers can overheat, smoke and catch fire, posing serious fire and burn hazards to consumers.
About 2.5 million were first recalled in September 2013 and later expanded in January 2014.
This recall involves 20, 25, 30, 40, 45, 50, 65 and 70-pint dehumidifiers with brand names Danby, De’Longhi, Fedders, Fellini, Frigidaire, GE, Gree, Kenmore, Norpole, Premiere, Seabreeze, SoleusAir and SuperClima.
Recalled model numbers and date codes are listed below.
The brand name and the pint capacity are printed on the front of the dehumidifier.
The model number and date code are printed on a sticker on the back, front or side of the unit.
The dehumidifiers are white, beige, gray or black plastic and measure between 19 and 24 inches tall, 13 and 15 inches wide, and 9 and 11 inches deep.
Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using recalled dehumidifiers and contact Gree for a full refund.
