West Palm Beach, FL—About 5,700 convertible clothes irons were voluntarily recalled by Sunbeam Products Inc., of Boca Raton, Fla. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for burn injury risks. The CPSC announced the product recall on February 3, 2011.
The recall was enacted after discovering that the iron can overheat, which can cause a fire due to a wiring issue. This poses a risk of burn injury to consumers.
“The recalled product is the Sunbeam® Convertible Iron with a model number of GCSBRS – 103. It is a blue and gray, hand-held garment iron that converts to a garment steamer. The model number can be found on the bottom of the iron’s plastic base. The recalled irons have date codes C235 or C237 imprinted on the blade of the plug and on the bottom of the packaging,” reported the CPSC press release.
The irons were sold exclusively at Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide for about $60.
Consumers are advised to contact Sunbeam for a free replacement.
