RECALL: Electrolux recalls Frigidaire and Electrolux Refrigerators due to choking hazard
More than 365,000 Frigidaire and Electrolux Side-by-Side, Top Freezer and Multi-door refrigerators have been recalled due to a possible choking hazard from the ice maker.
According to the recall, the ice level detector arm in the ice maker can break into pieces and fall into the ice bucket, posing a choking hazard.
This recall involves 13 models of Frigidaire refrigerators and one Electrolux model refrigerator. The refrigerators all feature an ice maker and come in stainless steel, white and black. The brand name, model and serial number for each unit is printed on a label located on the right panel in the interior of the refrigerator compartment. The refrigerators range from 23 to 36 inches wide.
Electrolux has received 185 reports of the ice level detectors breaking, including one report of gum lacerations.
The products were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot and appliance stores nationwide and online at Frigidaire.com from April 2020 through March 2022 for between $1,200 and $4,300.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Frigidaire and Electrolux refrigerator ice makers, empty the ice bucket and contact Electrolux to schedule a technician to replace the ice maker with one that has a polypropylene ice level detector, free of charge.
