More than 40,000 Jenn-Air ovens are be­ing re­called af­ter burn in­ci­dents


NEW YORK (AP) - Whirlpool is re­call­ing more than 40,000 of its Jenn-Air brand ovens af­ter cus­tomers re­ported burns due to faulty oven racks. The U.S. Con­sumer Prod­uct Safety Com­mis­sion says the ex­tend­able rack in­side the oven can fall out. Whirlpool re­ceived eight in­ci­dent re­ports from cus­tomers, in­clud­ing one who re­ported sec­ond de­gree burns to the back and arm. The re­call is for Jenn-Air's sin­gle and dou­ble wall ovens. They were sold at Sears, Pa­cific Sales and other stores for be­tween $2,500 and $5,000. About 33,000 were pur­chased in the U.S. and 8,000 in Canada. Whirlpool Corp., based in Ben­ton Har­bor, Michigan, says cus­tomers should stop us­ing the ex­tend­able rack and con­tact the com­pany for a free in­spec­tion and re­pair.
