You'd think if you paid $5,000 or more for a fancy, side-by-side refrigerator you wouldn't have to worry about the doors falling off. You'd be wrong.

Liebherr-Canada Ltd. is recalling its built-in, 24-inch wide single-door refrigerators -- often used in pairs to make a side-by-side -- because the doors can come loose and fall off, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. Only about 2,700 of the German made refrigerators were sold in the U.S. from January 2005 through November 2009. The units cost $2,500 to $3,000 for each single-door model; $5,000-$6,000 for side-by-sides. They are stainless steel or custom finished and are integrated into kitchen cabinetry.
