Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves an estimated 6,300 Blomberg and Summit brand Freestanding Electric Ranges.

The recalled Electric Ranges can become energized because a screw was not installed to secure the grounding strap during manufacturing, posing electric shock and electrocution hazards.

In August 2016, a 52-year-old professional plumber from Portsmouth, New Hampshire died from electrocution when he came in contact with an energized range and a grounded object.
