Two million dehumidifiers sold at Costco as well as other nationwide retailers are being recalled after it was found that some overheated and caught on fire, causing $17 million in property damage. The recalled dehumidifiers were sold at Costco as well as Lowes, Menards, Walmart, and other stores for as much as $430, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. The dehumidifiers were sold between February 2009 and August 2017.

Although no one was hurt, the products posed fire and burn hazards to users. All the products were manufactured by Widetech and are sold under different brand names, including Honeywell, Whirlpool, and Danby. The recall comes during one of the most humid months of the year. Dehumidifiers can be critically important when there’s excessive moisture in the air and the air becomes heavier and often makes it more difficult for some to breath. It is for this reason that high-humidity environments can be difficult for people who have asthma.

A properly functioning and safe dehumidifier can make the effort to breathe in and out easier on the lungs. Mugginess disappears and the air is cooler and more comfortable.
Dehumidifiers can create a healthier environment by eliminating mold and dust, and also eliminating invaders like silverfish, cockroaches, and spiders. Lower humidity levels may also benefit people who have COPD. People living in a naturally humid climate already understand that a dehumidifier can also cool off your home and reduce your air conditioner use. Consumers can contact New Widetech to get a refund on their products and can see a full list of recalled products on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
