RECALL: 14,600 LEM 5-tray food dehydrators

Posted: Updated:

The Consumer Products Safety Commission has issued a recall for about 14,600 LEM 5-tray food dehydrators.

LEM Products Distribution has received two reports of fan failure both  resulting in fire in the units.  In one incident the consumer was close by and prevented a fire by carrying the unit outside. There were no injuries reported.

The dehydrators are gray and are made of plastic and metal.  The model number 1009 is on a label located on the back panel with the company's contact details.  The "LEM" logo is embossed on the top of the unit, which has a panel with the digital timer, the on/off switch and a temperature control knob. The UPC code is printed on the bottom of the packaging and reads 734494010091.

They were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain, Sportsman's Warehouse and other mass merchandisers and retailers nationwide and online at Amazon.com and www.lemproducts.com from August 2010 through February 2013 for about $160.

Consumers should immediately stop using the dehydrator and contact LEM Products Distribution for instructions on free shipping and repair of the recalled product.

LEM is offering a one year warranty extension and a $10 discount coupon, which can be used towards a LEM catalog or online purchase, to all consumers who return their recalled units for repair.

Contact info: (877) 536-7763 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.lemproducts.com and click Warranty and Recall at the bottom of the page for more information
