LG Electronics Gas Dryers Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, LG Electronics and Sears Kenmore Elite are recalling a total of 21,000 gas dryers. The gas valve in the recalled dryers can fail to shut off properly, continuing to heat the dryer and its contents after the drying cycle is complete. High temperatures inside and on the exterior surface of the dryers can scorch the drum and burn or damage the dryer contents, posing a risk of burn, fire and smoke inhalation.

Both gas dryers are manufactured by LG Electronics of South Korea. Injuries related to this recall include 141 consumer complaints of dryers continuing to heat after the drying cycle is complete, 3 reports of minor burns to hands or arms and 50 incidents of burnt or scorched clothing.

Consumers should turn off the gas supply and stop using the dryers until repaired. Those who have purchased the LG model gas dryer should contact LG Electronics for additional information about the recall and to schedule a repair. Those who have purchased the Sears Kenmore Elite gas dryer, should contact Sears for information and schedule a repair.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a confidential consultation.
