I just got an email that Sensio Slow Cookers are being recalled! They are sold exclusively at Kohl’s.
Here is some info from the email I got from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Hazard: The slow cooker’s control panel can overheat and melt, posing a fire hazard.
Incidents/Injuries: Sensio has received 60 reports of the control panels of the slow cookers smoking, melting and sparking and three reports of panels catching fire. Fourteen incidents resulted in minor damage to countertops. No injuries have been reported.
Description: This recall involves the Bella Kitchen 5-quart programmable slow cookers. Only slow cookers with model number WJ-5000DE and date codes 0907 or 0909 are included in this recall. The slow cookers are black and “Bella Kitchen” is marked on the control panel. The model number and the four-digit date code are printed on a label on the underside.
Sold exclusively at: Kohl’s Department stores from July 2009 through December 2009 for between $20 and $40.
CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please tell them about it by visiting https://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx
I will have to call my parents because I think this is the one I got them for Christmas!
