Health Canada is notifying the public that All-Clad Metalcrafters LLC, of Canonsburg, Pa., has voluntarily recalled a waffle maker that poses a fire hazard.
The All-Clad 4-Square Belgian Waffle Maker sold 787 units in Canada from March 2008 to January 2009.
The wiring inside the stainless steel waffle maker can be damaged and contact with the metal body can result in shock and pose a fire hazard, Health Canada said in a press release.
All-Clad has received 23 reports of the waffle makers sparking. None of the reports came from Canada. There have been no reports of injuries.
The recall involves units with a model No. WD700462 and four-digit manufacture date codes ending in "08."
The waffle maker, which retails for about $200 US, was sold exclusively through Williams-Sonoma Inc.
Health Canada is asking that consumers unplug the waffle maker immediately and contact All-Clad for a free replacement.
