WASHINGTON, D.C. — In observance of Baby Safety Month, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reminds parents and caretakers to check consumer goods in their homes for recalled items according to a press release appearing on PRNewswire. The chairperson of the CPSC said that the agency has worked with dozens of companies to recall millions of items in the last year alone. The chances are high that you could still be using a recalled baby product. The CPSC issues product recalls to protect the public from unsafe consumer goods. The effect of a recall is only felt when consumers heed the recall notices CPSC announces. Therefore, the agency is urging families to scour their children’s toys, bedding, furniture, clothing, and other items for recalls, and then remove the dangerous products out of your child’s reach. 

Product recalls do not have an expiration date. Anyone who is concerned about waiting too long to return an item that has been recalled need not worry. Companies will honor your response to their product recall and offer a replacement item or refund the purchase price according to the CPSC. 

The CPSC urges parents to research product recalls on their website. The CPSC maintains an up-to-date list of all recalled products, including baby products. Some of the items recalled by the CPSC include inclined sleepers such as the Fisher-Price Rock ‘N’ Play, Fisher-Price Inclined Sleeper Accessory, Dorel Juvenile Group Inclined Sleepers, and the Kids II Rocking Sleepers. Infants’ head and neck support accessories manufactured by the Boppy Company has also been recalled. Baby rattle sock, Target Wooden Toy Vehicles, and Stokke Infant Steps Bouncers have also been recalled by the retailers or manufacturers in 2019. 

The CPSC also offers safety tips to help you care for your child as well. The CPSC recommends playing the baby on its back when sleeping and keep the crib free of items that could suffocate the baby. The CPSC also recommends that parents check for loose wires, broken parts, and be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when assembling baby items.

Contigo Children's Water Bottle Choking Injury or Death Lawsuit Lawyers

Choking Hazards Could Lead to Serious Injury or Death

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Children’s water bottles made by Contigo pose a huge and unnecessary risk of a choking hazard that could lead to severe injuries or deaths. Accordingly, 5.7 million water bottles manufactured and sold by Contigo must be recalled at this time. The ubiquitous water bottles no longer appear on store shelves because retailers began removing them because of the possibility a child could choke on a small piece that becomes dislodged from the unit. Supermarkets and national retailers such as Walmart, Costco, and Target offered the items for sale before the recall campaign began. CBS 42 reported that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is working with Contigo to prevent injuries from their defective water bottles.

According to CBS 42, the recalled kids’ water bottles shipped between April 2018 and June of 2019. Additionally, Contigo recalled a variety of sizes of the water bottles, including the 13, 14, and 20-ounce sizes. Retailers sold the bottles individually or as a combination pack in two and threes. Various graphics and colors adorned the outside of the bottles. Anyone owning a Contigo bottle matching these descriptions may consult Contigo directly or visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s webpage for additional instructions.

Parents should remove the recalled bottles from children immediately because of the substantial risk that a child will choke on the silicone mouthpiece or spout. Contigo received 149 complaints about the silicone spout coming off of the bottle. Shockingly, the company received 18 complaints from parents indicating their children had the spouts in their mouths. There were no reports of any choking incidents. 

Contigo did not indicate how or why the silicone spout would fall out of the secure bottle topper. Additionally, there was no information about the age of the children who had the entire spout in their mouths. Notwithstanding, the children – and their parents – are very fortunate to survive without sustaining a debilitating injury or choking to death.

CHICAGO, Ill. — Dehumidifiers recalled by their manufacturers are an unsuspected fire hazard lurking in people’s basements across the U.S. At least three dehumidifier manufacturers have recalled their appliances which could overheat and spark a fire. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, house fires set by overheated dehumidifiers, many of which were recalled by their manufacturer, caused $25 million in property damage in about 500 fires over the last few years. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warned about the fire hazard dehumidifiers present and caution consumers to research their machine to see if the company recalled the product.

The CPCS issued a warning to consumers about the possibility of their dehumidifiers starting a fire. The CPCS stated that many people who own dehumidifiers run them all day, every day. Folks will turn them on and forget that they are running in their basements. Allowing the appliances to run without stopping will cause them to overheat and could start to smoke and eventually catch fire. As a result of this defect, Gree Electric Appliances, LG Electronics Tianjin Appliance Co., GD Midea Air Conditioning Equipment, Ltd. recalled several lines of dehumidifiers sold by various retailers in stores and online, including Sears, Kmart, Walmart, Lowe’s, Sam’s Club, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Amazon.com. Gree Electric Appliances commenced its recall campaign as far back as 2013. However, only about 6% of people have returned defective dehumidifiers after the manufacturing companies recalled them. 

Fire investigators linked at least 500 house fires to faulty dehumidifiers over the last couple of years. Property damage from those fires is estimated to be around $500 million. Some people were lucky. The Chicago Sun-Times interviewed residents displaced by fire who said that the fire alarms in their homes saved them from tragedy after their dehumidifiers caught fire. 

Any consumer who has a question whether their dehumidifier was recalled should visit CPSC.gov or the website of the dehumidifier manufacturer.

Although people suffer injury in the U.S. daily because of defective products, federal safety regulations mitigate this risk.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) serves as a barrier that protects the public from unsafe products by developing voluntary safety standards, imposing mandatory standards, and banning products when no safety measure would adequately protect consumers.  However, these consumer protections offer limited benefit when companies emphasize profits over safety by covering up defects and product-related injuries to ensure their products remain on store shelves.  The CPSC has taken a novel step to discourage such egregious conduct by bringing a criminal indictment against two executives of two companies that imported and sold defective dehumidifiers in the U.S.

The companies are not mentioned by name in the indictment.  However, the operative facts detailed in the indictment suggest the charges stem from Gree Electric Appliances, Inc.’s failure to report consumer complaints involving overheating and fires caused by dehumidifiers the company manufactured.  The criminal indictment follows in the wake of recalls of dehumidifiers manufactured by Gree that ultimately resulted in a $15.4 million civil penalty agreement with the U.S. Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC). 

The indictment alleges that Simon Chu and Charley Loh, the Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Executive Officer of two unnamed companies that imported and sold dehumidifiers from China in the U.S., failed to fulfill reporting requirements under Section 15 of the Consumer Protection Safety Act (CPSA).  Specifically, the document alleges the executives “knowingly and willfully” failed to immediately inform the CPSC that the defective appliances posed a substantial product hazard and an unreasonable risk of injury.  The executives also are charged with conspiracy to defraud purchasers, the CPSC, and retailers, as well as wire fraud.

While Gree already settled a large civil action by paying a fine for failing to comply with reporting requirements under the CPSA, Section 21 of the of the statute authorizes the filing of criminal charges against a “director, officer, or agent of a corporation” for knowing and willful non-compliance with the reporting requirements of the statute.

Allegations in the indictment indicate the executives initially learned of the dehumidifier fire risk after receipt of a video from a purchaser showing one of the appliances on fire in July 2012.  They also purportedly were made aware that plastic used in manufacturing the device caught fire during testing in September 2012.  At this time, Chu and Loh allegedly became aware that the dehumidifiers failed to comply with UL safety standards for fire resistance.  The indictment alleges Loh sent emails to executives at a third company (an unindicted co-conspirator) advising that the devices were defective and non-compliant with UL fire resistance safety standards.  The emails further indicated that the companies had a duty to report the problems to the CPSC.  Nonetheless, the executives continued to sell the devices and delayed notifying the CPSC in a timely fashion.  When the CPSC was finally notified by the two unnamed companies (and the unindicted co-conspirator) on April 30, 2013, the agency was advised that the appliances were “safe and not defective.”

This case constitutes the first time that criminal charges have been pursued against company executives for violating CPSA requirements regarding defects that threaten public safety. The rationale for the indictment likely rests, at least in part, in the fact that accurate and timely reporting of the issue might have prevented some of the 450 fires and $19 million in property damage that has been linked to the defective dehumidifiers.

BELOIT, Wisc. — The Beloit Fire Department sprang into action for a call around 6:30 a.m. for a report of a house fire. According to the Beloit Daily News, the fire started due to a malfunctioning dehumidifier in a home located in the 1500 block of Forest Avenue. Thankfully, the residents were able to escape the blaze unharmed. However, the Interim Fire Chief for the Beloit Fire Department said that he estimated the home sustained approximately $67,000 of damage, most of which was from the smoke. The residents said that family and friends would assist them with lodging while contractors repair the damage to their home.

Humid summer air often forces people to use dehumidifiers to remove moisture from their basements. Often people will turn on their dehumidifiers and forget them. Homeowners often allow their dehumidifiers to run all day, every day without giving it a second thought. This practice is dangerous. Consumers must become aware of the fire risk dehumidifiers present. According to an article appearing in the Chicago Sun-Times, the Consumer Product Safety Commission or CPSC calculated at least 500 house fires resulting in $25 million in damages occurred because of defective dehumidifiers running in homes across the country. Furthermore, the CPSC estimates that numerous dehumidifiers that were previously recalled by their manufacturers because of an elevated risk that the units could overheat and catch fire.

Several dehumidifier manufacturers, all from China, initiated product recalls since 2013. The CPSC wants dehumidifier owners to check their appliances for the make, model, and year of manufacture and compare that information to the list of recalled dehumidifiers. Companies that started recalling specific models of dehumidifiers are Gree Electric Appliances, LG Electronics Tianjin Appliance Company, and GD Midea Air Conditioning Equipment, Limited. Consumers can find particular information about dehumidifiers on the CPSC website as well as for instructions about how to obtain a refund. The CPSC asked all owners of recalled dehumidifiers to stop using the appliance immediately.

RED WING, Minn. — Ferrin’s Furniture store in Red Wing, Minnesota caught fire recently. No one reported the fire to authorities. Instead, firefighters initially responded to an alarm sounding. Firefighters located smoke upon arrival at the store and changed the nature of the call from an alarm response to a structure fire according to an article appearing in the Republican-Eagle. Fire investigators from the Red Wing Fire Department along with fire consultants studied the fire and identified the source. The Red Wing Fire Marshal announced that the fire started when a dehumidifier located in the basement of the furniture store caught ignited. According to a follow-up report from the Republican-Eagle, the dehumidifier that started the blaze in the structure was recalled.

The Republican-Eagle identified the hazardous dehumidifier as a Soleus Air sold by Gree. Gree announced that it must recall several dehumidifiers because of a fire risk. Gree said that many of its dehumidifiers could possibly overheat, consequently igniting a blaze. The Fire Marshal for the Red Wing Fire Department and the recall announcement from Gree warned consumers to shut off the dehumidifiers immediately, unplug them from the wall, and stop using them.

Gree has an extensive recall campaign in place. Gree suggested to its customers that they could call the company, or they could visit the company’s fire recall webpage and ask the company for a full refund.

The recalled Gree dehumidifiers comprise many brand names. Among the brand names recalled are Frigidaire, Kenmore, Soleus Air, GE, and many more.  The recalled appliances come in several colors including white, black, beige, or gray plastic, stand between 19 and 24 inches tall, are 13 to 15 inches wide, and 9 to 11 inches deep depending on the model. Customers seeking a refund will need to locate the model and date code, both of which may be found on a sticker affixed to the front, back, or side of the appliance.

While many fires sparked by defective dehumidifiers manufactured by Gree Electrical Appliances based in China have affected private homes, commercial buildings also have been adversely impacted.  A fire at Ferrin’s Furniture, a store located in Red Wing, MN, caused fire damage in the basement and smoke damage throughout the commercial building.  The cause of the fire was traced to a dehumidifier identified as Soleus Air by Gree.  The device was operating in the basement of the building when the fire erupted.  Forty fire fighters worked to extinguish the fire according to local media reports.

This scene has played out hundreds of times in the U.S. as defective Gree dehumidifiers have caused approximately 450 fires resulting in tens of millions of dollars in property damage.  The Gree dehumidifier recall was announced by Gree in coordination with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on September 13, 2013.  The defective units, which were sold from January 2005 through August 2013, can overheat causing the dehumidifiers to spew smoke and ignite a fire. While the appliances have been blamed for extensive property damage, the assumption is that personal injuries and wrongful deaths claims will follow because of the number of fires and the extent of the damage.

Businesses and homeowners who experience a fire like this one caused by a dehumidifier manufactured by Gree might have the right to damages through a product liability claim.  If you have experienced burns, smoke inhalation, crush injuries from collapsing areas of a structure, or the death of a loved one, you might have the right to pursue damages on a “strict liability” basis.  Companies that design, manufacture, or market defective products can be liable without a consumer needing to prove negligence.  The business might be liable if the consumer proves the defect existed when the device was in the possession and control of the party (or parties) against whom a claim is filed.

While the CPSC is still investigating to determine why the devices are causing fires, a lawsuit filed by a company that sold the appliances under the name SoleusAire might provide some insight.  Documents filed in the lawsuit allege that the device is defective because of the use of substandard materials.  The Soleus lawsuit alleges that evidence of the device’s defect was discovered by an investigation conducted by an independent contractor.  The investigation allegedly was arranged after Gree dismissed reports of problems with the units received from consumers by Soleus.

The recall of the units that sparked the commercial fire includes designated 20-70 pint dehumidifiers sold under a range of brand names that include GE, Norpole, GE, SoleusAire, SuperClima, Fellini, Premiere, De’Longhi, Seabreeze, Danby, Kenmore, Frigidaire, Fedders, Gree, and Norpole.  The brand name and pint size of the unit can be found on the front of the device.  The date code and model number of the recalled units can be found on a sticker located on the front, back, or side of the dehumidifier.  If you have one of the recalled units, you should unplug the appliance and contact Gree for a refund.

If you or a loved one has suffered a property loss, injury, or the loss of a loved one in a fire caused by a Gree manufactured dehumidifier, our law firm is currently investigating such claims.  You might have a right to financial compensation for your injuries and other losses.  Call the Law Offices of Jason Turchin for a free assessment of your case at (888) 99-VICTIM.

A Texas woman severely injured by a pressure cooker has filed suit against the pressure cooker manufacturer, seeking damages for the harm she suffered when the pressure cooker lid exploded off the cooker despite the presence of “safety features.” 

Although many dangerous and poorly made products can cause injury and even death to consumers, most people assume that these products will be removed from the market before doing much harm.  Unfortunately, recalls offer limited protection because consumers usually are injured or killed before the implementation of a recall.  Companies responsible for defective products also might drag their feet in warning consumers or taking unsafe products off the shelves.  Even when a recall is finally announced, many consumers never realize they own a product subject to a safety recall.  The average consumer response to recalls is approximately six percent according to the Chicago Sun Times.

The wave of hundreds of fires caused by defective dehumidifiers over the last several years serves as a cautionary tale to remind consumers of the importance of checking their dehumidifier for recalls.  A Cedarburg, Wisconsin woman tragically lost her dog in a fire started by a dehumidifier last August, but the tragedy could have been even worse.  The dehumidifier was operating in her basement while the family was not home.  While the blaze was confined in the basement, smoke dust was circulated throughout the home by the central air conditioning system.  The fire did extensive smoke damage to the home and claimed the live of Bubba, their family dog.  

Like many other victims of dehumidifier fires, the Wisconsin family only discovered that their dehumidifier had been recalled after their home had been badly damaged and their dog perished.  The dog’s owner has since launched a Facebook page devoted to the incident.  Approximately 45 people have contacted her to indicate that they checked and discovered their dehumidifiers had been recalled after reading her Facebook page.

The risk of consumers remaining in the dark about the recall is compounded by the approaching warmer humid weather in many areas of the U.S.  Consumers frequently leave dehumidifiers operating 24/7 in hot weather.  A CPSC spokeswoman Patty Davis recommends that consumers turn off their dehumidifier before going to bed or leaving home even if the device is not subject to recall.  According to Davis, people should always keep an eye on dehumidifiers like other small appliances.

Dehumidifiers currently under recall were manufactured by Gree Electric Appliances, GD Midea Air Conditioning Equipment Ltd., and LG Electronic Tianjin Appliance Co., which are all based in China.  The recall covers 6.8 million units manufactured by these companies, which sold the appliances at major U.S. retail outlets like Sam’s Club, Home Depot, Amazon.com, Kmart, Walmart, Lowe’s and Ace Hardware.  The defective devices have been connected to 500 fires and about $25 million in property damage according to the CPSC.  The lion’s share of these fires and losses have been linked to the appliances manufactured by Gree.  However, consumers could be confused about the manufacturer of their dehumidifier because they were sold under about 60 different names.  Some were well known brands like GE, Sunbeam, Frigidaire, and Kenmore while others were effectively the identical product sold under the label of a different brand.

(Click here to visit the CPSC.gov for the most current information on dehumidifier recalls.)

(Check the Gree recalls website to determine if your dehumidifier is under recall.)

Check the Midea recall website to see if your dehumidifier is subject to recall.)

The number of fires and danger to the public also might have been compounded by the conduct of Gree in handling overheating complaints.  The company was slapped with a $15.45 million civil fine for failing to report issues with the dehumidifiers to the CPSC.  The Justice Department also has pursued federal criminal charges against two company executives responsible for the importation and distribution of the defective dehumidifiers.  The federal agency alleges that the executives neglected to report the known defects and persisted in selling the unsafe units further endangering consumers. This type of conduct might result in punitive damage awards against the company in future lawsuits involving property damage, personal injury and wrongful death.

Millions of dehumidifiers have been recalled since 2009 because of the risk of overheating and sparking fires.  Fires started by these appliances have caused millions of dollars in property damage and threatened the safety of sleeping families.  While these defective devices were generated by companies based in China like Gree, LG Electronics, and Midea, their defective dehumidifiers have been sold in the U.S. under familiar and trusted brand names the include Comfort-Aire, GE, Kenmore, and Frigidaire.

Although the dehumidifiers that pose a danger have been recalled, fires continue to be reported. Because a mere six percent of consumers respond to recalls, it is hardly surprising that fires continue to threaten homes and pose a risk of causing burn and smoke inhalation injuries.  If you own a dehumidifier, you should check to ensure that your device has not been recalled.  Consumers who find that their device appears on the list of recalled units should immediately discontinue use and unplug the device.  

(The Law Offices of Jason Turchin currently is investigating claims of individuals and families that have experienced property damage, burn injuries, smoke inhalation injuries, and the loss of a loved one.  If you have been the victim of a fire caused by a recalled dehumidifier, you should contact us to learn how to protect your right to compensation by calling us at (888) 99-VICTIM.)
