In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Whirlpool is voluntarily recalling about 1.4 million Whirlpool®, Comfort-Aire® and Kenmore® brand dehumidifiers. Department and appliance stores nationwide sold the dehumidifiers from February 1997 through December 2001 for between $130 and $260. The recall does not include rear water bucket dehumidifiers. The dehumidifier can overheat and catch fire.

Consumers with recalled dehumidifier units must immediately stop using the unit and disconnect the unit by unplugging it. Every potential user of the unit should be informed of the risk of fire and told not to use the dehumidifier.
