Fire hazard prompts dehumidifier recall

KUSA - About two and a half million dehumidifiers are being recalled after a report of 450 fires and $19 million in property damage.

The recall by the manufacturer Gree involves dehumidifiers of carrying shapes, sizes and colors under 13 brands, including Frigidaire, GE and Kenmore.

The recall was actually first announced in 2013, but has been updated and expanded – and even re-announced in 2014.

The company says people are still using the dehumidifiers, which is why they’re once again publicizing the recall.

To find out if your dehumidifier is affected, go to www.greeusa.com. You can also call Gree toll-free at 1-866-853-2802 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
