Millions of faulty dehumidifiers linked to property damages recalled
Approximately 3.4 million dehumidifier units in the U.S. are under recall due to the possibility that they could catch fire and result in property damage. The units were linked to $4.8 million worth of property damages, a November 2 article of cpsc.gov reported.
According to the recall, at least eight sizes of Midea dehumidifiers in 52 different brand names are at high risk of emitting too much heat and catching fire. Midea has not received any complaints of injuries involving the defective products. However, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission confirmed the recalled dehumidifiers were the cause of property damages amounting to roughly $4.8 million in the 38 cases of fire and smoke they received. Consumers are highly advised to closely inspect their products to determine if it is part of the recall. Midea is expected to address the problem through product replacement or refund. At least 850,000 of the recalled dehumidifiers were sold in Canada.
