About 23,000 Black & Decker toasters are being withdrawn because they may overheat and ignite, the distributor Applica Canada Corporation and the Ontario Electrical Safety Authority said Wednesday.
Applica Canada Corp. said the recall affects the Infrawave toasters with the model number ST2000 sold in stores across the country. The toasters were manufactured by Hong Kong-based Elec-Tech International Co.
About 4,000 toasters, which were priced for between $69 and $79 each, have been sold to consumers.
The company has learned of four toasters overheating, involving two reports of fire damage.
Consumers are advised to unplug their toasters and contact the company for a refund.
