New York, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and LG Electronics (Tianjin) Appliance Co. have voluntarily recalled Kenmore Dehumidifiers for fire and burn hazards posed to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on August 2, 2012.

The dehumidifiers are being recalled after discovering that they can overheat, smoke, melt and catch on fire, which poses a burn hazard to consumers.

Due to the product defect there have been 107 reports of incidents, with more than $7 million in property damage and three reports of smoke inhalation injuries.

“This recall involves 35-, 50- and 70-pint dehumidifiers with a Kenmore logo on the front top of the unit, manufactured between 2003 and 2005. The dehumidifiers are made of white plastic and are between 21 and 24 inches tall, about 15 inches wide and about 13.5 inches in depth. They have fan and humidity controls on their top front panels and some models include remote controls. They come with front-loading water buckets. The model number can be found on the right side of the interior of the unit once the bucket has been removed,” the CPSC reports.

The dehumidifiers were sold at Sears and Kmart stores nationwide, as well as on Sears.com and Kmart.com.

Consumers are advised to contact LG Electronics to receive a Sears gift card for either $75, $80, $90 or $100, which may be used at any Sears or Kmart store or at Sears.com or Kmart.com.

For more information concerning the product recall, please contact the Recall Fulfillment Center toll-free at (855) 400-4641 between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday and between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. CT Saturday, or visit www.Kenmoredehumidifierrecall.com.
