The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling 12 brands of dehumidifiers due to serious fire and burn hazards.
  More than 2 million, with several brand names, are being recalled by Gree Electric appliances.
  At least 46 fires are believed to be linked to the dehumidifiers.
  The dehumidifiers were sold nationwide at major retailers between January 2005 and August of this year.
  You should immediately unplug the dehumidifiers and contact Gree for a refund.
