CPSC, Disney Announce Recall of Mickey's Waffle Irons

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), The Walt Disney Co., of Burbank, Calif., is voluntarily recalling more than 1,300 electric waffle irons. The waffle irons are improperly wired, presenting fire, shock and electrocution hazards to consumers.

Disney has received one report of a waffle iron catching on fire at the wall socket. No injuries or property damage was reported.

The waffle irons were manufactured by Vitantonio Products. The wiring was installed improperly during the manufacturing process. Vitantonio is a former licensee of Disney Consumer Products and is no longer in business. However, out of concern for consumer safety, Disney immediately agreed to conduct the recall itself and provide consumers with an incentive to return the waffle irons. Disney is offering consumers who participate in this recall a $70 gift voucher good for use in The Disney Catalog.

The waffle iron is chrome and black. It is made in a "clam-shell" design, and when the top lid is opened, a Mickey Mouse face is revealed on the cooking surfaces, which measure 7 inches in diameter. "Vitantonio Premier Mickey's Waffler The Walt Disney Co." is on a metallic label on the handle. Only waffle irons with three-prong plugs bearing model number 1950 and a serial number in one of the following ranges are being recalled: 17001000 to 17002661 or 46006022 to 46006524. The model and serial number are on a label affixed to the bottom of the waffle iron, along with "Vitantonio ... Made in U.S.A. ... UL 43G5 Listed".

Walt Disney World Resorts and specialty kitchen and department stores nationwide sold the waffle irons from October 1996 through January 1997 for about $60.

Consumers immediately should stop using the recalled waffle irons. Consumers should contact Disney at (800) 935-2394 anytime for instructions on returning the waffle iron to receive the $70 gift voucher.

Vitantonio made a number of other styles of Mickey waffle irons for Disney. None of these products are involved in this recall.
