Burn Hazards

CPSC Issued Recalls Over Burn Hazards. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued two releases announcing recalls over products that pose burn hazards.

Approximately 1,700 DiNotte Lighting Lithium-Ion Batteries used with bicycle lights have been recalled by DiNotte Lighting due to a burn hazard.  AA Portable Power Corporation of Richmond, California is the manufacturer and DiNotte Lighting, of Hampton, New Hampshire is the distributor of the DiNotte Lighting Lithium-Ion Batteries that contain a loose wiring connection and improper venting, which can cause the battery to overheat, posing a burn hazard to consumers.  The DiNotte Lighting Lithium-Ion Batteries were manufactured in the United States and China, are packaged with nylon bags, and are used with DiNotte 5W Li-Ion bicycle lights and DiNotte 3 LED police lights; the DiNotte logo is printed on the battery cable connector. The DiNotte Lighting Lithium-Ion Batteries retailed for $200-$400 and were sold at bicycle and recreation stores nationwide and over the Internet from February 2006 through March 2007.  The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the battery and contact DiNotte Lighting to receive a free replacement battery.  DiNotte Lighting can be reached at (866) 822-7694 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, at the firm’s Website at www.dinottelighting.com, by email at service@dinottelighting.com.

General Electric Recall Wall Oven

In the second release, the CPSC announced that General Electric is recalling about 244,000 GE®, GE Profile™, Monogram®, and Kenmore® Wall Ovens, all manufactured by GE Consumer & Industrial, of Louisville, Kentucky. The ovens are being recalled because the extreme heat used in the self-clean cycle can escape if the wall oven door is removed and incorrectly re-attached by the installer or the consumer, which can pose a fire and burn hazard to consumers.  GE is aware of 28 incidents of minor property damage in which adjacent kitchen cabinets have been damaged.

The recalled ovens were sold for between $900 and $3,600 at home builders and appliance stores nationwide from October 2002 through December 2004. The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately inspect the oven to ensure the appliances do not have an incorrectly re-attached wall oven door, which does not open into the flat position. If the wall oven door is incorrectly re-attached, consumers should not use the self-clean cycle and should call GE for a free repair.  In the meantime, consumers can continue to use normal baking or broiling function in the oven until the oven is repaired.  The wall ovens, which were all manufactured in the United States, were sold in white, black, bisque, and stainless steel.  The recalled ovens’ model and serial numbers, listed below, are located inside the oven on the left interior wall.  In the case of microwave combination ovens, the serial number can be found on the microwave’s left interior wall:

  • GE/Profile model numbers JCT915, JT912, JT915, JT952, JT955, JT965, JT980 (lower oven only), JTP20, JTP25, JTP28, JTP48, JTP50, and JTP86 and Monogram model numbers ZET3058, ZET938, and ZET958.  The serial numbers for these models begin with TD, VD, ZD, AF, DF, FF, GF, HF, LF, MF, RF, SF, TF, VF, and ZF.
  • Kenmore—all model numbers begin with 911—and then follow with 4771, 4775, 4781, 4904, 4905, 4923 (lower oven only); serial numbers begin with 2T, 2V, 2Z, 3A, 3D, 3F, 3G, 3H, 3L, 3M, 3R, 3S, 3T, 3V, and 3Z

GE can be reached toll-free at (888) 569-1588 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday ET or at its Website at www.GEAppliances.com.

My experience with Parker Waichman has been a positive one for the most part. Having dealt with many individuals in almost 3 years, I have to say they have all been helpful. The only thing I would like done more proficiently is the communication and follow-up. I know they are a very busy firm but it would be nice if they got back to you sooner.
