GE Recalling Dishwashers


May 16, 2007

General Electric is recalling 2.5 million dishwashers because a wiring problem could cause fire.

Brands included in the recall are Eterna, GE, GE Profile, GE Monogram, Hotpoint and Sears Kenmore GE. The company has received nearly 200 complaints of overheating, including 12 fires caused by the washers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says that consumers should stop using the dishwashers immediately. Anyone with the dishwashers can contact GE for a free repair or a rebate to go toward a replacement.
