Hundreds of laid-off workers are being called back to their jobs at the company's Fort Smith, AR manufacturing facility, said a (4029tv.com) report.

The report cited a Whirlpool spokeswoman who said that an increase in production demand is the reason behind the company calling back 400 workers who've been recently laid off.

In 2008, Whirlpool laid off nearly 700 workers in a decision the company said was result of the national economy. The company said the call back of 400 employees to its assembly lines is demand related and that the increase production demand should remain until next summer. Whirlpool's Fort Smith plant manufactures side-by-side refrigerators and ice makers.

The report said that Whirlpool is planning to add a production shift by the end of January which could require making new hires.
