Company recalls slow cookers

Sensio Inc. of Montreal, Quebec (Canada) has recalled about 25,000 slow cooker home kitchen appliances manufactured in China.

According to the company, the slow cooker’s control panel can overheat and melt, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.  Sensio says that it has received 60 separate reports of the slow cookers smoking, melting and sparking, and three reports of the panels catching fire.  A total of 14 incidents have resulted in minor property damage to countertops, but there have been no reports of injuries.

The recalled slow cookers were sold in Kohl’s Department stores from July 2009 through December 2009 for between $20-40.
