Excerpt, The Dallas News, USA, October 1, 2008-

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said Tuesday that it is recalling about 210,000 toasters that may cause electrical shocks and fires.

The toasters, manufactured in China and sold at Wal-Mart stores throughout the U.S. under the General Electric Co. brand for $17 to $28, may produce a short circuit between the heating element and the bread cage that causes sparks, according to a statement issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and posted on Wal-Mart’s Web site.

While 140 cases of shocks or fires have been received regarding the products, sold from September 2007 through July, there has been no report of injury, according to commission spokeswoman Patty Davis.
