Product Recalls: Front Loading Washers, Wooden High Chairs, USB Wall Chargers

Today there are three product recalls I'm passing on.  The GE Profile™ frontload washing machines, Graco Classic Wood Highchairs & Atomi USB Wall Chargers.

Here's a recall that you might not have seen yet:

GE put out a recall for their Front Load Washers due to an injury hazard that can come from the washer's basket.  It can separate during use, posing a hazard for injury.

No injuries have been reported yet, but GE is recalling their GE Profile™ frontload washing machines with model numbers beginning with WPDH8800, WPDH8900 and WPDH8910.

The suggestion is that consumers stop using the washer and contact GE for a free repair.

GE Appliances: (888) 641-9739 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.geappliances.com/products/recall

Graco brand Classic Wood Highchair involved have the model numbers 3C00BPN, 3C00BPN TC, 3C00CHY, 3C00CHY TC, 3C00CPO or 3C00CPO TC.

If you bought a USB wall charger at Burlington Coat Factory, Tuesday Morning or TJ MAxx, you might want to know about an overheating and smoking issue with some of them.

The recall is for the "Sharper Image USB wall chargers" that were made by Atomi.  They're apparently overheating and could burn a consumer.

No injuries but a few reports have been made about the overheating.

Consumers are being instructed to stop using the chargers.  The recall involves Sharper Image USB wall charger model numbers "TSI202" and "TSI260."

You can get a refund after returning the items.  Contact Atomi; Phone (800) 790-1440, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email info@atominy.com.
