Hamilton Beach has recalled the Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 2-slice toaster. Consumers should stop using the toaster immediately. According to the USCPSC, when the toasters are first plugged into the outlets, the heating element can be energized although the toaster lifter is in the up or off position, which can pose a fire hazard if the toaster is near flammable items.
Hamilton Beach says it has received five reports of toasters being energized when first plugged into an outlet. There have been no reports of injuries or property damage. The recall involves model 22602 toasters. The model number is printed on the bottom of the toaster. The toaster has a chromed steel exterior, a front control panel with a rotary toast shade selector and function buttons arranged in an arc, a front removable crumb tray and “Hamilton Beach” printed below the control panel.
The toaster was sold at mass merchandisers and department, grocery and home center stores nationwide from August 2011 through November 2011 for between $19 and $34. Also, some of these toasters were sent to consumers as replacements for model 22600 toasters recalled in June 2011.
