Toasters Recalled By Hamilton Beach

Comments Off

Hamilton Beach Brands, working with the CPSC, is voluntarily recalling classic chrome 2-slice toasters due to a fire hazard posed by a defect in the heating element.

The company has received 15 reports of toasters that did not pop up as intended, including three reports of minor damage to kitchen cabinets. No injuries were reported.

The recall involves model 22600 toasters with specific series. The series codes begin with the letters C or D, and have the format of CXXXXBI or DXXXXBI, where XXXX is a four-digit number ranging from 0190 through 5290.

The toasters were sold by various retailers nationwide from February 2008 through June 2011.

Consumers are urged to discontinue using the recalled toasters and to contact Hamilton Beach for a free replacement toaster. For more information regarding this recall, call (800) 379-2200 or visit their Web site at www.hamiltonbeach.com.
