Keeping track of the latest product and food recalls can be a challenge for any consumer, so Consumer Ally has collected them all in one place for you to check each week.

Here is this week's roundup:

  • Hamilton Beach recalled 300,000 toasters because the heating elements can remain energized and could ignite if an item is placed in the toaster, creating a fire hazard, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Hamilton Beach has received 15 reports of toasters that didn't pop-up as intended, including three reports of minor damage to kitchen cabinets. So far, no one has been hurt. Included in the recall are the company's classic chrome two-slice toasters (Model no. 22600) with series codes that begin with the letters C or D, and have the format of CXXXXBI or DXXXXBI, where XXXX is a four-digit number ranging from 0190 through 5290. The model number and series code are printed on the bottom of the toaster. The toaster has a chromed steel exterior, a front control panel with a rotary toast shade selector and function buttons arranged in an arc, a front removable crumb tray and Hamilton Beach printed across the front of the toaster. Consumers should call Hamilton Beach for a new toaster at (800) 379-2200.
