Burlington, NJ– Burlington Coat Factory and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voluntarily recalled about 7,460 slow cookers for fire hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on March 2, 2011.

Only slow cookers with model number WJ-5000DE and date codes 0907 or 0909 are included in this recall.
