NEW YORK (AP) – More than 1 million thermostats are being recalled because the batteries can leak and cause a fire.
The thermostats are made by White-Rodgers, but some have different brand names printed on the front.
There have been seven reports of burn damage to the thermostat, with two involving minor property damage, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. No injuries have been reported.
The thermostats were sold at hardware stores and heating and air conditioning companies from January 2006 to December 2013.
Customers should call White-Rodgers at 888-624-1901 or visit our website for a link to a recall page. Recall page: www.regcen.com/1f8recall/.
White-Rodgers, based in St. Louis, Mo., is a division of Emerson Electric Co. The thermostats were made in China.
