News outlets have reported a recent announcement from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stating that the refrigerators manufactured by the Liebherr company had to be recalled due to an issue regarding the appliance’s door.
Consumers were reporting accidents involving the doors of the freestanding refrigerators. According to the reports, they were simply coming detached unexpectedly. Individuals who allegedly suffered injuries say they were completely unaware of this issue since the product worked fine up until the moment the doors would fall.
The reports from the CPSC state that over 8,000 units should have been out of the market since March of 2011.
