Recall-alert-newWALL SWITCHES About 75,000 Heath/Zenith and WirelessCommand motion sensing wall switches sold at mass merchants, electrical distributors, hardware retailers and online retailers from August 2007 through August 2011 for between $20 and $25. When the switches are in the auto mode and the light is off, a small amount of leakage current passes through the electric circuit, including the socket. If consumers fail to disconnect the power at the circuit breaker and make contact with both terminals inside the socket while replacing the bulbs, there is a risk of an electric shock.
IF YOU OWN ONE Contact the company for a free wall switch replacement. Call 855-704-5438, send an e-mail to [email protected] or go to www.heath-zenith.com/hzproductnotice.

REFRIGERATORS About 8,000 units Liebherr freestanding 30-inch-wide, bottom freezer refrigerators sold at appliance and specialty retailers nationwide from February 2004 through July 2009 for between $3,500 and $3,800. The refrigerator's door can detach, posing an injury hazard to consumers.
IF YOU OWN ONE Contact Liebherr immediately to schedule a free in-home repair. Consumers should check their refrigerator immediately to see whether the door hinge pin has become loose as indicated by a popped up hinge pin at the top. If the hinge has not become loose and the door is functioning properly, consumers may continue to use the refrigerator until it is repaired. Call 877-337-2653 or go to www.liebherr.us.
