Hamilton Beach Toaster Recall: Fire Hazard
About 300,000 Hamilton Beach chrome toasters are being recalled due to a design flaw that can make the toaster a fire hazard.
The Hamilton Beach toaster recall was announced on June 30 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), after Hamilton Beach received at least 15 reports of toasters not popping up as intended, which included three reports of minor damage to kitchen cabinets. No one has been injured in connection with the defective toasters.
According to the CPSC, the heating elements in the toasters can stay hot indefinitely, which could lead to contents in the toaster igniting.

The toaster recall affects about 300,000 Hamilton Beach classic chrome 2-slice toasters with a model number of 22600. The toasters have a series code of C0190BI through C5290BI and D0190BI through D5290BI. Both the model number and series code are printed on the bottom of the toaster. Hamilton Beach is printed across the front of the chrome exterior toasters, which have a front removable crumb tray, rotary toast shade selector and function buttons arrayed in an arc.
The toasters were sold by mass merchandisers, department stores, grocery stores, home center stores and online retailers nationwide from February 2008 through June 2011 for between $30 and $40.
The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the recalled toasters and contact Hamilton Beach for instructions on how to receive a free replacement toaster. Customers can call Hamilton Beach at 800-379-2200 or visit the company’s website at www.hamiltonbeach.com.
