Dehumidifier Recall Issued Due to Fire & Burn Hazard

Dehumidifier Recall Issued Due to Fire & Burn Hazard

The product liability lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION advise that Gree, in conjunction and cooperation with the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission ("CPSC") have voluntarily instituted a product recall of twelve (12) brands of dehumidifiers due to associated fire and burn hazards. These dehumidifiers have already been linked to millions of dollars in property damage.

The product defect associated with these various dehumidifier units involves their potential to overheat, smoke and then catch fire, posing an obvious fire and burn hazard to consumers.

This recall currently involves approximately 2.2 million such units in the United States, coupled with another 52,000 units in Canada. Specifically, the dehumidifiers have the following brand names:

  • Danby
  • De'Longhi
  • Fedders
  • Fellini
  • Frigidaire
  • Gree
  • Kenmore
  • Norpole
  • Premiere
  • Seabreeze
  • SoleusAir
  • SuperClima

For product identification purposes, the recalled model numbers and date codes are listed below (absent respective pint capacities, which can be found printed on the fronts of these various dehumidifier units).

Model numbers and date codes can be found on stickers on the backs, fronts or sides of the dehumidifiers. The dehumidifier product identifiers are as follows:
