CPSC and Sunbeam recall Convertible Clothes Irons

WASHINGTON, DC (KAIT) – Sunbeam Products Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced the recall of Convertible Clothes Irons.

CPSC says the product was recalled because the irons can overheat causing a fire hazard because of a wiring issue; consumers could be burned by the product.

According to Sunbeam, the company has received 7 reports of iron overheating and three reports of irons catching fire, but no injuries have been reported. The iron has a model number of GCSBRS – 103 which can be found on the bottom of the plastic base. Date codes are imprinted on the blade of the plug and bottom of the packaging with the numbers C235 or C237. It is a blue and grey, hand-held garment iron that converts into a steamer.

The product was sold at Bed Bath & Beyond Stores nationwide on June 2010 to November 2010 at a price of $60.
