    Welbilt Toaster Ovens Recalled

    WASHINGTON, July 11, 2000 -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Appliance Co. of America is recalling about 7,000 Welbilt toaster ovens. The ovens' heating elements can break, causing the glass door to shatter. The toasters could short circuit, causing electrical shocks and fires.

    Appliance Co. has received 14 reports of heating elements breaking. In one incident, the glass door broke, and in another, a countertop was scorched. No injuries have been reported.

    These Welbilt toaster ovens with rotisserie and griddle have model number TR660 on the back of the oven. The oven is white and black about 17 inches wide and 12 inches high, and has a glass door. Three knobs on the right side of the oven control the temperature; function, such as broil, rotisserie, toast and bake; and length of time. "WELBILT® Toaster Oven With Rotisserie & Griddle" is written on the oven's lower-right front.

    Club, discount and department stores, and mail order catalogs sold the toaster ovens nationwide from January 2000 through May 2000 for about $100.

    Consumers should stop using these toaster ovens immediately and call the Appliance Co. of America for a free replacement toaster oven or a refund. Call the Appliance Co. of America at (800) 872-1656 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
