Defective Product

Surge Protectors

The Consumer Product Safety Commission website lists recalls of surge protectors made by many different companies, going back to the 1980s, which include reports of smoking, electrical shock, fires, property damage, and injuries. Surge protectors are designed to protect electrical or electronic equipment from voltage spikes or surges that can damage them. What’s dangerous is when surge protectors begin to overheat, smoke, or burn. It can cause injuries, such as shocks and burns, and can cause fires that lead to property damage and even loss of life.

The complaint alleges that although Wolf had the ovens replaced—twice—after about a year, both cavities of this third set of ovens showed the same problem.
