Recall information for Kenmore appliances can be found by running a brand-name search in the product recall database on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website. The CPSC is charged with protecting the public from the risk of injury or death associated with defective consumer products.
From the CPSC homepage, consumers can click on the Recall link on the top menu bar to access a page with information on recent product recalls. On the right is a Search Recalls and News Alerts form field where consumers can enter a company name or product and an optional date range to retrieve information on recalls. Entering "Kenmore" into this field brings up the details of every Kenmore appliance product recall going back decades.
An alternative method of researching Kenmore appliance recalls is to use the Recalls.gov website. This intergovernmental Internet project brings together recall information from six federal agencies, including the CPSC, Federal Drug Administration and Department of Agriculture. Consumer appliances fall under the jurisdiction of the CPSC, so the search results from the Recalls.gov database should mirror what is contained in the database available on the CPSC website.
As a last resort, consumers can visit Kenmore's official website for information on current product recalls.
