A toaster that can potentially leak electrical current was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission last week. Bodum recalled its bistro toasters due to this hazard. It occurs at the maximum normal temperature, putting consumers at a shock risk.
There have been eight reports of shocks when touching the toaster in Canada. No injuries are reported in United States at this time.
The recall involves two models: the two-slice model and the four-slice model. The toasters were sold at appliance stores and online from September 2018 to June 2019.
Consumers should stop using the products immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers can also contact Bodum at 833-722-6386 for a prepaid mailer to return the toaster for a refund.
