The Home Depot, of Atlanta, Ga., has recalled about 2,000 Hampton Bay Dehumidifiers. An internal component can fail causing the dehumidifier to overheat, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. Home Depot has received 18 reports of the dehumidifiers catching fire. One consumer reported a burn injury to his forearm. The dehumidifiers are beige, have four wheels, and measure 21 inches high, 13 ½ inches wide and 17 ½ inches long. “Hampton Bay” is printed on the front panel. Model HB-50 is being recalled. The model number is printed on the back interior panel. They were sold at The Home Depot from November 2000 through May 2007 for between $120 and $150. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dehumidifiers and contact Home Depot to receive a gift card for the full amount of the purchase price.
