Electrolux recalls refrigerators due to ice maker choking hazard

The Electrolux Refrigerator brand has recalled its Frigidaire and Electrolux refrigerators due to a choking hazard from the ice maker.

Frigidaire and Electrolux Side-by-Side, Top Freezer and Multi-door refrigerators have been reminded due to the discovery that the ice level sensor arm in the ice maker may break into pieces and fall into the ice bucket.

Those chunks in the ice pose a choking hazard, officials say.

The company recommends replacing the unit entirely, calling for replacement of all 367,500 units sold in the United States. The units were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot, and appliance stores nationwide and online at Frigidaire.com from April 2020 to March 2022 for between $1,200 and $4,300.

About 7,180 have been sold in Canada, officials say.

Electrolux has received 185 reports of broken ice level sensors, including one report of gum lacerations.

The recall report was released on June 2, 2022.
