Gree reannounces dehumidifier recall due to serious fire and burn hazards

Posted: Updated:
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall for more than 2 million dehumidifiers made by Gree Electric Appliances of China.

They were initially recalled in September, because they can overheat and catch fire.

But many people didn't heed the warning, and reported incidents of overheating dehumidifiers has jumped 400 percent since then.

The recall includes many different sizes and brand names, include some GE, Kenmore, and Frigidaire models.
