In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), distributor Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has recalled 600,000 GE slow cookers. Hamilton Beach/Proctor-Silex Inc. of Glen Allen, VA, U.S., which imported the appliances, was also named in the recall.

Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed, as the handles on the base of the slow cookers can break, posing a risk of burns from hot food spilling onto consumers. Hamilton Beach and Wal-Mart have received 531 reports of handles breaking, including four reports of consumers who were burned by hot food.

The recalled slow cookers include the 4.5-qt Oval and 6-qt Double Dish models sold under the General Electric (GE) brand name. The 4.5-quart unit has model number 106661 and the 6-quart unit has model number 106851. Both models have series codes A through D.

The recalled units were sold exclusively at: Wal-Mart stores across the U.S. from August 2000 through December 2002 for about U.S. $25 (4.5-qt model) and $35 (6-qt model).
