Sears is re-announcing the recall of nearly 800-thousand Kenmore dehumidifiers due to additional reports of fires and because so few people responded the first time. In the original notice last August, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Sears had gotten 107 reports of injuries and more than seven-million dollars in property damage. Since then, Sears has received seven additional reports of shorting and fire associated with the dehumidifiers including a severe burn to a consumer's foot.
