WASHINGTON (AP) - Sears is re-announcing the recall of nearly 800,000 dehumidifiers because of new reports of fires and because so few consumers have responded to the first recall.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Sears has received seven additional reports of shorting and fire linked to the Kenmore dehumidifiers. One case resulted in severe burns to a person's foot. Three of the fires caused more than $300,000 in property damage.
During the original recall last year, CPSC said Sears had more than 100 reports of problems with the dehumidifiers, including property damage and several cases of smoke inhalation.
The recall involves 35-, 50- and 70-pint dehumidifiers with a Kenmore logo. They were manufactured by LG Electronics Appliance Co. between 2003 and 2005.
Consumers can call 855-400-4641 or visit www.kenmoredehumidifierrecall.com for more information.
Thousands gathered at the memorial to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to those who survived.
It may take drivers a little longer to get around this weekend. On Sunday, there will be lane and road closures for the Honolulu Marathon.
The city has received more reports of stray bullets from the Koko Head Rifle Range. So the city is closing the range while it figures out how to make it safer.
