“Electric Range Recall”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 24, 2017) – The U.S. Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has announced the recall of 6,300 Blomberg and Summit brand freestanding electrical range ovens. The electrical ranges are capable of becoming energized since screw was not properly installed in order to secure a grounding strap during the oven’s manufacturing. As a result, the range poses a significant electric shock and electrocution hazard.
In August 2016. a 52-year-old plumber from Portsmouth died from electrocution when he came in contact with the energized range and a grounded object.
This recall involves the following models; Blomberg BERU 24200 SS, BERU 24100 SS and Summit CLRE 24 24-inch wide freestanding glass top electric ranges.
The ranges were being sold by the following stores; AJ Madison, State Street Discount and other stores nationwide. The ranges were sold for the price of between $1,000 and $1,500.
