In a statement on Monday, Costco said it has recalled nearly 10,000 electric appliances.
“We are aware of the reports of a recall of a number of electric appliances that were delivered to our stores in the United States.
We have been in contact with customers, and will provide them with the opportunity to exchange their electric appliances,” Costco said.
The announcement comes a day after reports that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is investigating a complaint of possible chemical damage to a number in the brand name Bob’s Electric.
Costco and the CPSC have not commented on whether the recalled appliances are connected to the recalled Bob’s brand.
Costcos’ announcement comes as the retailer has been plagued by a spate of recalls and recalls are still under way for some of its other products.
In March, Costco recalled about 4.5 million items of household goods.
The retailer said the recalled items are being sold on its website.
In May, the retailer recalled a large number of its electric appliances for possible safety issues after a customer said her electric home thermostat unit malfunctioned, causing it to overheat.
The thermostats were also recalled.
On March 6, Costco released a list of products that are being recalled.
The list included a number sold in the U.S. as “Bob’s Electric” and the following brands:Bob’s Furniture, Bob’s Furnishings Electric, Bobs Furniture Electric, Electric Equipment, Bobbs Furniture Furniture and Bobs Electric.
