Toaster Recall

Over 300,000 toasters will be recalled after reports of the toasters causing a fire risk to users. These chrome 2-slice toasters “can remain energized indefinitely when an item is placed in the toaster which may ignite the contents.” The recalled toasters’ manufacturer, Hamilton Beach, reports that it has received 15 reports of toasters that did not pop back up. So the toast stays down and stays hot which at some point leads to a fire.
