Health Canada has issued a recall notice for 61,000 dishwashers due to a potential fire hazard.
Dishwashers sold between January 2013 and May 2015 of the Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau, Kenmore and Jenn-Air brand, all feature power cords that can overheat, posing a potential fire hazard.
While the dishwashers’ manufacturer, BSH Home Appliances, has received no reports of property damage in Canada, there have been five reports in the United States, where 408,000 of the machines were sold. Fortunately, there have been no reports of injuries.
