Greenfield World Trade Recalls Food Dehydrators Due to Fire and Burn Hazards

The dehydrators can overheat, posing a risk of fire and burns

April 21, 2017

Greenfield World Trade is recalling roughly 14,000 EZDRY food dehydrators due to a risk of fire and burns.

The affected products can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.

The recalled dehydrators are white with six trays. They weigh around four pounds and measure 12 inches tall by eight inches deep by 10 inches wide. EZDRY is printed on front of the devices, while EZDRY and model number EPD60W are included on a white label on the unit's bottom.

The products were sold at Kohl's stores across the country and online at Amazon from June 2016 until February 2017 for between $40 and $50. They were sold in white boxes labeled EZDRY by Excalibur Home Dehydrator that included a picture of the device. The dehydrators include Date Code: 2116, 2416, or 3316 engraved at the label's bottom on the bottom of the unit.

Although there have been no injuries reported, the company has gotten 13 reports of the products overheating and the plastic unit melting, including six reports of fire and one report of property damage to a countertop.

For this reason, consumers are urged to stop using the dehydrators immediately and to contact the company for either a full refund or instructions on how to return the products with a prepaid shipping label for a free replacement.

For more information, consumers can reach Greenfield World Trade at (877) 881-0065.
