More than 2 million dehumidifiers are being recalled by a Chinese company because they are prone to catching fire, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The dehumidifiers were sold under brand names Danby, De’Longhi, Fedders, Fellini, Frigidaire, Gree, Kenmore, Norpole, Premiere, Seabreeze, SoleusAir and SuperClima between 2005 and this year.
They were sold at several U.S. stores, including Home Depot, Kmart, Lowe’s, Menards, Mills Fleet Farm, Sam’s Club and Sears.
The dehumidifiers can overheat, smoke and catch fire. So far, there have been reports of 165 incidents, including 46 fires and $2.15 million in property damage. No injuries have been reported.
