Dehumidifiers Recalled for Serious Fire Hazards


If you use a Goldstar or Comfort-Aire dehumidifier, you may want to make sure that it isn’t one of the many recently recalled models, which officials say have been causing house fires. According to a report by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), about 98,000 dehumidifiers have been recalled by LG Electronics Tianjin Appliance Company. Goldstar model numbers GHD30Y7 and DH305Y7 and Comfort-Aire model number BHD-301-C have been linked to multiple fires across the country. Many of the homes affected by these defective products have sustained fire damage valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. These items were sold from January 2007 through June 2008 at Home Depot, Walmart, and various other retailers like Ace Hardware and Orgill. It is not clear if there were any injuries or fatalities relating to these defective products.

Whenever a product presents a serious risk to consumers, it is the manufacturer’s job to either warn the consumers or issue a safety recall. Dangerous appliances and household items have been known to cause fire hazards, laceration injuries, and electrical shock injuries. Victims of these types of injuries may pursue financial compensation for their losses by filing a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the defective product.

A product liability claim is a civil lawsuit that a consumer may file to seek compensation from a negligent product manufacturer. Victims can seek compensation for medical bills, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost wages.
