The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), with the cooperation of General Electric, has issued a recall for washing machines manufactured by the company. The washing machines are sold under various brand names, including, G.E., Eterna, GE Profile, GE Monogram, Hotpoint, and Sears-Kenmore. The CPSC has received a dozen reports of fires causing property damage, emanating from the dishwashers, and nearly 200 reports of overheated wiring. To date, no injuries have been reported. Any consumer with one of the suspect brands, should call GE’s recall hotline, at (877) 607-6395, or the CPSC recall hotline, at (800) 638-2772.
