Gree Electrical Appliances, Inc., a Chinese appliance maker, will pay a $15.45 million civil penalty according to the CPSC. It appears the company failed to report fires caused by its dehumidifiers to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and also lied to CPSC staff during its investigation. The settlement amount represents the highest CPSC civil penalty levied to date. The company, along with two affiliates, made and imported dehumidifiers sold under 13 brand names, including Frigidaire, GE and Kenmore.
