Each recall entry on the list outlines the nature of the recall, why the recall is necessary and how consumers should respond to the situation. The linked pages also divulge the manufacture location of the specific product, as well as an explanation of incidents or injuries related to the recall. A sidebar provides contact information for consumers looking to reach Frigidaire directly for assistance with the recall process or for help identifying recalled models. Moreover, the company provides a media contact for news outlets or websites looking to share the listed information with the public.

For instance, one recall entry identifies a problem related to liquids pooling under the knobs on specific Frigidaire ranges, causing them to activate without user input, or heat to an unexpected temperature and fail to shut off when users move the dial. The entry notes that 70 reports of incidents led to the voluntary recall and outlines the severity of some of the incidents. It also contains a list of model numbers affected and advises consumers to contact Frigidaire for a free repair kit.
