Property damage from fire involving a recalled Gree-manufactured dehumidifier Property damage from fire involving a recalled Gree-manufactured dehumidifier
Gree Electric Appliances issued a recall for dehumidifiers back in September because of the danger they can overheat and catch fire.

But according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, very few people actually bothered to turn in those units. Since the time of the recall, the number of overheating incidents have jumped 400% with property damage reports of $4.5 million dollars

Now that recall has been reissued.  These models were sold at AAFES, HH Gregg, Home Depot, Kmart, Lowe's, Menards, Mills Fleet Farm, Sam's Club, Sears, Walmart and other stores nationwide and in Canada, and online at Amazon.com and Ebay.com, from January 2005 through August 2013 for between $110 and $400.

Recall Details

Units: About 2.5 million in the United States and 55,000 in Canada (This recall was first announced in September 2013, updated in October 2013 and expanded in January 2014)
