Toasters Recalled for Fire Hazards Before Product Liability Claims Arise

Hamilton Beach Brands is a maker of home appliances such as blenders, mixers, toasters, irons and air purifiers and commercial restaurant equipments marketed mainly in the US, Canada and Mexico since 1910.

It’s been more than a century since they built their name as a maker of appliances. Therefore, Hamilton Beach Brands would definitely not allow any single product defect to ruin their reputation.

However, after the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found out that a Hamilton Beach Brands’ product presents a fire hazard to consumers, they immediately announced for a nationwide product recall.

The said product being recalled is the Hamilton Beach Brands’ classic chrome 2-slice toaster. The CPSC discovered that when the toaster is plugged into an outlet, the heating mechanism starts to heat up even though the toaster is still technically off. Model 2602 toasters are involved in the said product recall.

Consumers can check their Hamilton Beach Brands’ toaster model number printed at the bottom of the toaster. The CPSC further described the full detail of the Hamilton Beach product recall in a report.

Before claims for product liability arise, Hamilton Beach Brands has advised the consumers to contact them for instructions on how to obtain a replacement toaster. This is will further protect their long-established name and hard earned reputation.

The Hamilton Beach Brands provided their contact details regarding the said product recall. Consumers can call Hamilton Beach at (800) 576-6600 anytime or they may visit their website at www.hamiltonbeach.com.

The manufacturing companies have their lawful obligation regarding the quality of their product. If the Hamilton Beach Brands would not cooperate with the product recall ordered by the CPSC, a product liability claim can be filed by the consumers against the companies, producers or manufacturers if ever personal injuries arise due to negligence and marketing of sub-standard products or services.
