WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Norcold Inc., of Sidney, Ohio, is voluntarily
recalling 360 free-standing, combination gas and electric refrigerators.
Tubing in the cooling unit can crack and leak flammable gas, presenting
a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.
The recalled refrigerators are white, with black trim on the front, and
have the Norcold logo on the bottom left corner of the control panel.
The refrigerators have cooling unit serial numbers within the range of
1038000 to 1099000, which can be found on the black canister at the
bottom right of the back of the refrigerator.
Specialty retailers nationwide sold the refrigerators from May 1999
through January 2000 for about $900.
