White-Rodgers Recalls Home Heating and Cooling Thermostats Due to Fire Hazard
This recall involves all White-Rodgers programmable thermostats with model numbers 1F88-XXX and 1F85RF-275 and date codes beginning with 05, 06, 07, 08, 09 and 1001 through 1039. The model number is printed on the thermostat’s front pull-down panel door. The date code is located inside the removable front cover. White-Rodgers and/or the utility company’s name and logo are printed on the front of the thermostat. White-Rodgers programmable thermostats constantly charge the backup AA batteries used to power the thermostat’s clock. This can cause the batteries to leak, resulting in a fire hazard.
Consumers should immediately remove the two AA batteries from the thermostat and contact White-Rodgers for a free repair kit.

Cool-it Soother by Vulli Teething Rings Recalled by Calisson Due to Ingestion Hazard
If the Cool-it Soother teething ring is punctured, bacteria and mold can grow inside the teether’s untreated liquid. This poses an ingestion hazard to infants and can lead to diarrhea and vomiting. The Cool- Soother teething rings were sold at small children’s specialty stores nationwide and online at www.amazon.com from January 2008 through November 2010 for about $10.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled teething ring away from children and return it to Calisson for a free replacement teething ring.
