by Levin & Perconti

1. Electric Oil Lamps: Hong Teng Trading Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 3,900 Electric Oil Lamps because the power court is not correctly secured. Additionally, the switch housing is not flame retardant. As a result of these issues, the lamps pose a fire hazard. For more information.

2. Dishwashers: Maytag is voluntarily recalling about 2.3 million Maytag and Jenn-Air brand dishwashers. Liquid can leak and come into contact with the dishwasher’s internal wiring which can short-circuit and ignite, posing a fire hazard. For more information.

3. Easy-Bake Ovens: Easy-Bake, a division of Hasbro, Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 985,000 Easy-Bake Ovens. Young children can insert their hands into the oven’s opening, posing an entrapment and burn hazard. For more information.

4. Curling irons: Conair Corp. is voluntarily recalling about 322,000 Curling Irons. The handle of the curling iron can come apart exposing its line cord, posing a shock or electrocution hazard to consumers. For more information.
