KITCHENAID CANADA VOLUNTARILY RECALLS TOASTERS

MISSISSAUGA, ON March 24, 2005 - KitchenAid Canada announced today a voluntary recall of an estimated 884 KitchenAid® Pro Line® 2-slice and 4-slice Toasters sold in Canada between May 2004 and February 2005.

No incidents of property damage or personal injury have been reported in Canada.

The recalled products are painted die-cast metal / stainless steel 2-slice and 4-slice countertop household toasters, models: (model and serial numbers are on labels affixed to the bottom of the toasters)

Consumers that have the affected units should immediately unplug and stop using the toaster and inform all users of the toaster not to use it due to the risk of self-start and fire.
