QVC is recalling about 13,000 toasters in the U.S. because they pose a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
The CPSC warned the toasters might switch on spontaneously. The company has learned of five associated incidents.
The recall affects the Cook's Essential CT200 toaster sold through QVC's shopping programs, website, toll-free number and stores from May 2000 to May 2003 for between $50 and $60 US each.
The toasters were manufactured in China.
Consumers should stop using them and contact the company for refunds.
