Hamilton Beach recalls toasters due to fire hazard

Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. of Glen Allen, VA has announced the recall of about 300,000 of its Hamilton Beach-brand two-slice toaster manufactured in China.

The company reports that the heating element in the toasters can remain energized indefinitely when an item is placed in the toaster, which may ignite the contents and pose a fire hazard if the toaster is near flammable items. Hamilton Beach says that it has received 15 separate reports of toasters that did not pop-up as intended, including three reports of minor damage to kitchen cabinets. However, no injuries have been reported.

The recalled toasters were sold by mass merchandisers and department, grocery and home center stores nationwide, as well as through various online retailers, from February 2008 through June 2011 for between $30 and $40.
