JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Consumer Product Safety Commission along with Hamilton Beach Brands Inc., is recalling about 300,000 toasters.

According to the CPSC, the heating element in the Hamilton Beach classic chrome 2-slice toasters can remain energized indefinitely when an item is placed in the toaster. This can cause the toaster to ignite the contents, posing a fire hazard.

Hamilton Beach has received 15 reports of toaster that did not pop-up as intended, including three reports of minor damage to kitchen cabinets.

Consumers are asked to stop using the toasters immediately and contact Hamilton Beach Brands Inc., for a full refund.
