Home Safety: Dehumidifier Recall

Many news outlets have covered a recall notice for dehumidifier units.  The recalled units can “overheat, smoke and catch fire, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.”  If you haven’t yet checked on your home or business unit, please do so.  If you are like me, you probably either had a unit on the list, or know of other friends and family that did.   These fires continue to happen and there is a way to prevent them, but you have to take a little time to check.
