Safety Recall

Hamilton Beach Brands Announces Recall of Toasters Due to Fire Hazard

Hamilton Beach Brands is voluntarily recalling about 482,000 toasters worldwide. The toasters can remain "on" (energized) after popping up, and can ignite flammable items covering or in contact with the toaster, posing a fire hazard.

ANY CONSUMER WHO HAS A RECALLED TOASTER SHOULD STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY AND DISPOSE OF IT IN ANY CONVENIENT, SAFE WAY - BUT SHOULD NOT SELL IT OR GIVE IT AWAY. EVERYONE SHOULD DO THEIR PART TO PREVENT FURTHER USE OF A RECALLED PRODUCT!

Hamilton Beach has received at least 63 reports of toasters remaining on after popping up. There have been no reports of injuries or fires.

The recalled toasters were sold under the Hamilton Beach and Proctor-Silex® brand names, which are printed on the front of the toasters. The recalled toasters are stamped metal and plastic toasters that come in 2-slice or 4-slice models.
