More Than 2 Million Dehumidifiers Recalled Due to Risk of Smoke and Fire: Is Yours On the List - Babble

This CPSC photo shows property damage caused by a recalled dehumidifier. 165 reports have been filed, including 46 fires and $2.15 million in property damage.

More than 2 million dehumidifiers are being recalled due to concerns about smoke and fire hazard, says the US Consumer Protection Commission. The dehumidifiers can overheat, smoke and catch fire, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers, says the CPSC.

Although sold under many different brands, all of the dehumidifiers recalled were manufactured by Gree Electric Appliances, of China. The companies involved have received reports of 165 incidents, including 46 fires and $2.15 million in property damage. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately turn off and unplug the dehumidifiers and contact Gree to receive a full refund. Contact Gree toll-free at (866) 853-2802 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET, or online at www.greeusa.com.
