Harrison, OH—About 3,500 food dehydrators with digital timers have been voluntarily recalled by LEM Products and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for fire hazards the product poses. The CPSC announced the product recall on February 16, 2011.

The recall was initiated after discovering that the screws that secure the motor to the back of the panel can come loose, causing the motor to fall onto the heating element, which poses a fire hazard to the consumer.

“This recall involves 5-tray and 10-tray LEM food dehydrators with serial numbers 2010 0701, 2010 0702, 2010 07021, 2010 0901, 2010 0902, 2010 1001 or 2010 1101. The dehydrators are gray and are made of plastic. The LEM logo is embossed on the top of the unit. The serial number is located on the label on the back panel. The last section of the UPC code found in the packaging reads ‘1009 1’ for the 5-tray unit and ‘1010 7’ for the 10-tray unit,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact LEM Products for a free repair kit.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact LEM Products toll-free at (877) 425-4509 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.lemproducts.com.
