Whirlpool recalls ovens due to a report of burn injuries

Posted on August 3, 2015 11:52 am under Product Liability

Michigan-based Whirlpool Corporation is recalling approximately 33,000 of its Jenn-Air single and double wall ovens, and combination microwave/wall ovens, after receiving reports that the extendable roller rack may disengage when fully extended and cause burns to users, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated on Wednesday, July 29.

Recalled ovens have model numbers beginning with JJW2, JMW2, JJW3, and JMW3. The product’s serial number, on the other hand, begins with either a D or an F. Both the serial and the model numbers for single and double ovens are located under the product’s control panel. For combination microwave ovens, the serial and model numbers can be seen near the center vent.

The company has already received eight reports of roller rack disengaging, one of which resulted in second degree burns to the back and arm. Customers are asked to contact the company for a free in-home product inspection.
