GE Recalls 1.3 Million Dishwashers Due to Fire Hazard
More than a million GE dishwashers are being recalled because of heating elements that can fail and cause fires.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall includes about 1.3 million GE, GE Adora, GE Eterna, GE Profile and Hotpoint dishwashers.
GE has received seven reports of fires, three of which caused extensive property damage. No injuries have been reported.
The dishwashers were sold between March 2006 and August 2009 for $350 to $850. They came in black, white, bisque, stainless steel and CleanSteel colors and finishes.
The government says people should stop using the dishwashers and immediately disconnect the electric supply. The government says not to return recalled dishwashers to stores where they were purchased. GE will provide free repairs or rebates toward new dishwashers. (AP)
