Washington, DC: Over 2 million dehumidifiers carrying major brand names are being recalled by Gree, in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada. They announced a recall on dehumidifiers manufactured by Gree Electric Appliances of China that were sold from January 2005 through August 2013.

The dehumidifier can overheat, smoke and catch fire, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. The firm has received 16 reports of incidents with the recalled GE-brand dehumidifiers, including 11 reports of overheating with no property damage beyond the units, and 5 reports of fires beyond the units which were associated with about $430,000 reported in property damage. This is in addition to more than 71 fires and $2,725,000 in property damage reported with other brands of Gree-manufactured dehumidifiers in the previous recall which involved about 2.2 million dehumidifiers in the United States and 52,500 in Canada.

This recall involves select 20, 25, 30, 40, 45, 50, 65 and 70-pint dehumidifiers with brand names Danby, De'Longhi, Fedders, Fellini, Frigidaire, GE, Gree, Kenmore, Norpole, Premiere, Seabreeze, SoleusAir and SuperClima. The model number and date code are printed on a sticker on the back, front or side of the unit. The dehumidifiers are white, beige, gray or black plastic and measure between 19 and 24 inches tall, 13 and 15 inches wide, and 9 and 11 inches deep.

The affected products were sold at Sam’s Club, Walmart and other stores nationwide and in Canada, and online at Amazon.com and Ebay.com, from April 2008 through December 2011 for between $180 and $270.
