Amana estimates that approximately 5,000 of the 353,000 side-by-side refrigerators made from April 1993 to September 8, 1994, have a screw on the light cover that could come into contact with a concealed electrical wire to cause a shock.
Owners of Amana side-by-side refrigerators with serial numbers within the range who mailed in ownership registration cards will receive screw replacement kits from Amana. The kits contain instructions, a special non-conducting wrench, and nylon replacement screws. Consumers who believe they have one of the recalled units, and who did not mail in their registration cards, should call Amana immediately at (800) 688-9900 for a free screw replacement kit.

The blades on KRUPS blender models 238 "Power X" and 239 "PowerX Plus," which were promoted for their ice crushing features, can weaken or break off once they have been used to crush ice. The broken blades can cause serious injury to the throat or mouth if swallowed or taken into the mouth.

To receive a new blade free-of-charge, consumers should call KRUPS consumer service at (800) 526-5377.
