  • Best Buy,
  • Home Depot,
  • Kmart, and
  • Sears.

The recall involves top-loading washing machines which were manufactured between 2010 and 2011 and were sold as late as December 2012, for between $899 and $1,099.

While product recalls can help to prevent accidents and injuries, the problem is getting the word out to those who use or otherwise come into contact with a recalled product.

That model dishwasher was manufactured nearly 10 years ago and had been recalled in 2009. Product registrations can help prevent these kinds of accidents.
