Gree Recalls Another 350,000 Dehumidifiers

WASHINGTON (AP) - Gree Electric Appliances is recalling an additional 350,000 dehumidifiers because of a risk that they could overheat, smoke or catch fire.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 16 reports involving the humidifiers, including five reports of fires resulting in about $430,000 in property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The dehumidifiers are light gray plastic with the GE brand name and come in 30-, 40-, 50- and 65-pint sizes.

They were sold at Sam's Club, Walmart, Amazon.com, Ebay.com and other outlets from April 2008 to December 2011 for $180 to $270.

The CPSC says consumers should turn off and unplug the dehumidifiers and contact Gree to receive a refund at 866-853-2802 or http://www.greeusa.com .

Gree recalled 2.2 million dehumidifiers sold under different brands in September 2013.
