In what amounts to a major recall, Elkhart, Ind., supplier Dometic Corp. announced late Monday (Feb. 12) that it is voluntarily recalling refrigerators that may pose a potential fire hazard. The affected two-door refrigerators, totaling 926,877 units, were manufactured between April 1997 and May 2003.
"Dometic is committed to offering RVers the best and safest in RV products," Brad Sargent, vice president of marketing for Dometic, stated in the release. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."
Of the recalled refrigerators, Sargent maintains in the release, "99.99% do not pose a danger to the owner."
The potentially affected refrigerators have the following model numbers: NDR1062, RM2652, RM2662, RM2663, RM2852, RM2862, RM3662, RM3663, RM3862 and RM3863.
