The Consumer Product Safety Commission is re-issuing a recall for dehumidifiers that can catch on fire.

The recall was first issued back in 2013. 

About 2.5 million were sold in the United States.

The dehumidifiers are linked to 450 fires and $19 million in property damage.

The products are made by Gree but sold under more than a dozen brand names, including GE and Kenmore.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using recalled dehumidifiers and contact Gree for a full refund.
