Earlier this week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of almost 10,000 LG Electronics portable dehumidifiers. The recall comes after complaints that the power connector for the compressor could short circuit and cause possible fire and burn hazards. The defective product is LG's 30 pint portable dehumidifier sold in Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Heat Controller, Inc. stores from January 2007 to June 2008 for between 140 and 150 dollars.
The CPSC suggests that if you have purchased this product and use it in your home to stop using it and read over LG's recall notice. Furthermore, if you wish to arrange a free repair they advise owners to contact the GE service center.
